When the problem says "if he had one more solid ..." , this raises his total to 42 hens.

Do you need more help?

14 speckled, one half will lay speckled eggs , each hen and a half, will lay an egg and a half, in a day and a half

this all has to be multiplied representing how many speckled eggs will be laid in a day and a half; then you have to find out how many days it takes to lay 11 dozen = 132

14 (1/2) (3/2) (3/2) (3/2) = ((189/8) will be laid in one and a half days

132 / (189/8) = 5.6 ; That is how many one and a half days it will take

5.6 (3/2) = 8.4

It will take 9 days to get 132 speckled eggs

That is true, however if he had one more solid color has no effect on the number of speckled that he currently has, it only increases his total to 42, of which one third would be speckled.
