    My guess is that it belongs to your RIR - mine laid eggs that looked just like that, including the speckles. Hope you enjoy many more!

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I also would guess your red. The chicken chart I have shows egg color can vary for them, more likely than the doms...


    With that being a first egg, the color will probably level out after the reproductive system works it's kinks out. Speckled eggs are awesome looking!

    Congrats on your first egg! [​IMG]
