    Is it possible that my silkie lays brown eggs???? I have seen her nesting and singing the egg song, but no white eggs.... I get small brown and larger brown eggs, so is it possible that she lays them? My birds are pullets btw.

    Sometimes when my silkies go broody on other's eggs, they sing the egg song too, thinking it's theirs. :idunno

    Pic of bird and eggs in qestion? Are they BROWN or are they light cream? Have you looked at her vent to judge if in production? How old is your silkie? How many birds total and how many eggs are you getting daily?

    I have 9 hens and 1 rooster: 3 BR's, 3 BO'S, 1 EE, 1 polish, and the one silkie hen plus my BO rooster. Light brown ( guess it could be called a cream, but a darker cream at that. About 8 months (same as all my pullets besides the polish (she is 7). I think I have got 8 eggs in one day, (not exactly sure) but the usual is 5-7. I still can't figure out how to get my Media on this new device, but will try.

    I honestly tried to check the vent, but I could be wrong... Vent seemed loose and moist, and I can fit my 2 index fingers between pelvic bones....
