    I have rhode island reds, a white rock, a plymouth rock, an easter egger, and I think a wyandotte. I am not sure which one laid it but it looks cool.

    The Wyandotte gets my vote. Looks just like the ones I'll get from my SLW. Pink with lighter pink speckles all over -- so cute!

    My sex link has laid eggs like that. Most of the time she lays regular brown eggs, but sometimes they have darker brown speckles, and sometimes they have pale brown speckles. [​IMG] I know they're all from the same bird b/c she was my only layer for a little while this summer.

    Quote:x2 One of mine lays huge pink eggs, the other brown eggs, and the 3rd eggs like that, though not quite as pretty.

    I'd say that's definitely a chicken egg. [​IMG]

    If you got your Rhode Island Reds from a hatchery they could actually be Production Reds and some lines of Production Reds will lay that type of egg.

    It could be ANY of your brown layers, really. Young pullets can do that, no matter the breed. It can be slightly speckled, heavily speckled, whatever. It will disappear with age though.
