    does any one have information (size, color, shape) on the eggs laid by silver leghorn bantams? this also ties into another question (kind of). my silverleghorn bantam is crossed with rhode island red. my question is if she will lay Rir-type eggs (brown, big) or SLB-type eggs.

    update: if it helps: the chicks FATHER is silver leghorn, then chicks MOTHER is RIR

    thanks (i know nothing about breeds, or anything of that sort... but i love splash silkies!)
