    See my answer to your question on the silkie thread, but in short, most likely eggs form silkies that originated in The Netherlands. Chances are pretty good that they are either paints or reds.

    What breeder is the origin of the eggs? That will likely tell the answer--If Jerry S. then it is silkies from The Netherlands (several generations ago).
