We have four quail three lay shiney brown speckled eggs but one is layinging bluer (except when the shell it wetted it looks brown) eggs with no shine. Any thoughts or is it just age as per other tread on soft eggs

I think its just a quail thing, from around ten eggs a day each one of ours is totally different.
they are differing ages, now I come to think of it, so maybe it is also an age thing....
