Hmm, have you cracked them? What do they look like on the inside, normal?
Not yet wasnt going to until I needed it but I should mention the weather has been going from 80 to 60 so im not sure of that is affecting anything.

That eggs not olive either, so it could be a disruption in the “paint”, usually coloured Eggers eggs are paler in warmer months and from older birds, more intense in the colder months. If she keeps laying weird eggs maybe you have a genetic anomaly!

She lays brown eggs
@Weeg i have been collecting them right away i don't like to leave them out to long.
@Meg-in-MT they are more soft spots on the shell I have seen the calcium deposits on my other chickens and these aren't like those

Are the grey spots raised/rough? They look like calcium deposits.

@Nigel27 Olive eggers do not always lay olive eggs. They can be pink/tan/brown etc.
I think you’re thinking “Easter Eggers”
Olive Eggers are a cross between a brown layer and blue layer, and they lay olive eggs
