This handful of canary eggs, each one from a different hen, shows how they can vary. The color can range from almost white through the light blues to a darker, almost muddy greenish-blue, and some hens can lay larger or smaller eggs than another hen of the same size.

Sometimes there are speckles of a lighter red-brown or a darker black-brown. While these markings do often tend to cluster on the bigger end of the egg, they can occur anywhere and indicate that the chick within could show melanistic markings – especially with the more heavily marked eggs.
