    My Faverolles lay eggs that are more of a cream color, only slightly tinted, except for the one that lays an egg that's brown. She's a hatchery bird, though and looks like a mixed breed. When I had Faverolles before, their eggs were cream colored, also. With hatchery chickens, the egg colors can be different than what the breed standard calls for.

    Have her wattles and comb turned red, yet? They start to darken when they're getting ready to lay.
