    Surprised no one answered yet. Silkis lay peewee size eggs. One book said white and somewhere I read cream color. I have 3 white silkis 9 mo. old and no eggs yet

    I'll be in the barn!
    To answer your question, silkies lay medium sized cream/off white eggs. I know from experience :)

    Here's welsummer and wyandotte pullet eggs on the top and a pullet silkie egg on the bottom. Its from one of my darker silkie layers. My other silkies lay varying shades of light brown, cream or ivory eggs. I have never had a white silkie egg but some are pretty pale.beige

    So the longer egg is a silki. I have found some eggs that look like that but never thought it would from my white silkis! I am surprised, thought they would be much lighter. Now I need to check the eggs like that to see if they are feritile so I can find out who is laying and get the girls a place to nest in. Now I am really excited!
