My last black sexlink is finally laying... at 8 months old!! However... the eggs are quite disappointing! She is a huge girl, super feathery and glossy and healthy, about the biggest in the flock: she is a mix of barred rock and RIR, maybe a dash of black cochin in there. Eggs are barely bigger than those of my silkie hen, and WHITE! I caught her in the nest yesterday and today so I know these eggs are hers. Little bit of blood smears on them, too. Left to right: silkie egg, two of my sex link's eggs (her first two), and a random egg from the sexlink flock for comparison, they pretty much look more or less the same: I would love to hear that there is hope that her eggs will get bigger and darker over time..! Thoughts??
