    One of our chickens just passed away and we thought she laid these sort off eggs :rolleyes: . It is slightly different to the other ones but does anyone know of a chicken that lays these sort off eggs?

    Thanks in advance

    My girls lay a darker version of speckled eggs. They are the "red pullets" from Tractor Supply.

    Lots of brown egg layers can leave spots on the eggs. This is most likely just extra dye or bloom as it is called, speckling the egg. Not necessarily a breed thing.

    Welcome to BYC and enjoy those eggs!

    Welcome to BYC. Speckled eggs are occasionally laid by individual hens from many breeds.
