    What color eggs do Silver Laced Wyandottes lay?

    I am trying to figure out where the light brown egg with dark brown speckles came from. LOL

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    That is very possible. My ladies eggs are light creamy brown, with medium brown speckles. I only have one that lays and egg without speckles, and they are medium even toned brown.

    My SIL lays a light pink/tan egg. My two RIR's lay my medium brown eggs with speckles.

    My SIL is very particular. If the nest box has too many eggs, or a hen laying, she will lay on the floor of the coop. I have three chickens right now, and 5 nest boxes. She is very choosy.

    Just gave my fair 3 chickens a bath because they get blood tested and pen assigned at 6..........never again.........did not like. My fluffy roo looked like a 2 month old he was so small and disgraced.

    Here are my two at about 9 months old. Will their lacing improve and will they get "fluffier"? I just live the look of a big, fat, fluffy hen! :)

    Sorry to say if they are 9 months old they are not going to change much. They are hatchery quality SLW's. They are pretty and if they are giving you eggs, enjoy them.
