    This is my first golden Sebright hen (I've somehow gotten all boys in the past) and I noticed her face is really dark. My male silver and gold sebrights do not have this dark face an I was wondering what this is? I also have no idea how to tell when she is going to lay because her comb and wattles are really dark. I found a cream colored egg this morning but I also have a red pyle, silver duckwing, and two d'uccle pullets in the pen too and they're all really close to laying so I don't know who laid it.
    Any information on this? I tried searching, but I can't find much information.

    She seems to have a tiny bit of pink coming in

    I dont know why it happens, but I have seen it many times before. It is not uncommon

    A lot of the silvers I have gotten from McMurray had that, they tended to stay pretty dark for awhile even after they had started laying.
