    Bought Silver Laced Brahma eggs.
    3 hatched .now at almost 3 weeks one for SURE is tan or golden tan and black ,not white and black like the other 2. Did they just mess up on the eggs or is there some recessive gene with the gold and silver laced ?
    Thanks ahead if you know..

    There should be no possibility of a gold based chick out of pure silver laced parents. My guess would be a mixed flock, or possibly used a silver/gold split male.
