That is a great looking egg!
Chicken calculators keep coming up that all chicks will be black, but I'm still not sure... those things only work if you know of hidden genes...

wanted to take some video but can't find my phone again .I'll look for it again tomorrow before I lock down .
WV might be right that they only carry the gold but all look silver... I'm blnot sure since I refuse to work with laced... I love laced, but too messy to work with... your sex-links won't produce sex-linked, just mixed up mutts, sorry...

Ah, that explains her pretty coloring!

In theory the chicks could all look like SLW chicks.
Just thinking out loud here.......
Dunno... told ya laced is messy, lol...
I did talk to my friend and she said it has been a while but she thinks they'll hatch out looking similar at first, but as they grow out the Lav carries will have very smutty lacing...
Hope this helps...

WARNING!!!!!! Image may disturb some.
She's gone. She made one last attempt to take a breath and stretched out and thats it. Gggggrrrrrrr!!!! I should not have worked out this morning because I would have oticed something g before she was being stepped on by the others.
So sorry, hon!
It could have been anything... I wouldn't guess neurological from what you saw though, that sounded like typical death throes, sorry...
