I have a 7 month old white Silkie that I thought started laying small light tan eggs two weeks ago, but today I caught my Blue Wyandotte on the nest and waited till she was done,and lo and behold she was the one laying the small tan egg. Such a small egg for such a big bird!! Now I'm wondering when and what my Silkie is going to lay!Anybody have any Idea?
Silkie's a late bloomer

It could be the silkie laying and the Wyandotte could have just been laying there and never laid HER egg ^^ She might have just been trying out the nest! Silkies should lay small bantam sized white or cream eggs :3
Hurray! I finally caught my silkie on the nest, with a Golden Star, and I ran out there as soon as they moved off the nest, and now I know for sure what egg she is laying, It is very small , elongated, very light tan almost pink. I have 3 Goldens, 2 white leghorns, EE, Light Brahma, Blue Wyandotte and white silkie. Took me a while to sort out whose egg was whose. Still don't know if the Brahma is even laying though.
