SO here is my question and I'm only asking because I couldn't find photo evidence anywhere.....Do silver laced polish go through an initial phase of not being laced? Does the true "lacing" show up with their adult feathers? after the fist molt? Or have I been sold a bill of goods? My "silver laced polish" eggs hatched well. They looked right as young chicks. But now they are about a month old and they are not laced as I have seen in the photos of the parents they were supposedly from - nor any other SL bird for that matter. They are black and white but they are literally about 50/50 in the coloring. There is no solid lacing. They have too much color to be mottled and too even a distribution to be splash. I am sorry I have no photos, DD has the camera in NC right now. But believe you me, they are NOT SL at this point. I wonder if they ever will be. Does anyone have photos of chicks about this age so I can compare???
