    My Silver Cuckoo Maran finally started laying. I expected them to be alot darker as her sibling are laying really dark eggs. Its the one in the middle in the picture. Will they eventually get darker?

    They might not. Silver cuckoos aren't know for super dark eggs unless you get them from a breeder that has worked on egg color to get them that way.

    Generally they are as dark as they are going to ever be at the beginning of their laying cycle.
