    We've gotten about half a dozen eggs from our silkie pullet so far, she seems to lay one tiny egg every other day or so.

    I thought they would get bigger with time... will they???

    Eggs are barely over one inch in length, some days they are smaller than that! [​IMG]

    We keep our silkies for comedy value, apparently... 3 roos and 2 pullets, one who is only 12 weeks old so FAR from laying!

    How are YOUR silkie eggs?

    Those look just like mine. We just use 2 for 1 when cooking.

    That was her first and her biggest [​IMG]

    We need THREE to get the equivalent of one normal egg...

    Good thing she's so cute [​IMG]
