Just had our first eggs from our chicks...I guess now hens All of the eggs were brown...so I'm assuming they are from my buff orpington and not the silkie....can anyone confirm that buffs have brown eggs and silkies have white eggs? *** and my second egg question is: since we didn't know anyone was laying (didn't expect it until mid/late november) there were 5 eggs. We didn't eat, because we didn't know how long they were out there. We do have a silkie rooster. When we cracked the eggs, the white dot looked more like a ring and some of the eggs had yolks that were partcially DARK orange color & partcially lighter yellow color... do you think these eggs were fertilized?
