    I have a new 7 week old pullet who is mixed silkie and RIR and something else. Mom lays green eggs and we think dad is RIR/silkie. Any guesses what color eggs she's going to lay?

    if Mom laid green eggs she was an easter egger. there's a chance your pullet will also lay green eggs. silkies lay tinted white eggs and RIRs lay light brown eggs. There is always the possibility she will lay one of these colors as well depending on genetics.
