One of mine lays a lightly spotted egg. Darker spots though. Nothing wrong with hers, she hatched 8 from 8 a few weeks back. I think its just down to the hen (or sometimes the breed).

Thanks for that, it was i had never seen it before, and since having my first hens for 4-5 weeks now this was the first egg with white spots on, i thought it might be i have fed wrong or there was an ill hen, thats why i asked for peace of mind!!! Many thanks!!!
