    So here is the 3rd egg that has been layed by my silky Serama. They have gotten a little larger each time but not by much. However none of the eggs have had a yolk in any of them. My concern is that the hen is infertile. Any thoughts?

    She is the one on the left. Her sister (on the right) is a little slower developing.

    If it was her first 3 eggs ever she may just be practising still and will hopefully work out the kinks in her reproductive system and lay normal eggs soon.

    thanks for the response.. I sure hope your rite, she is a great little chicken and I would love to keep her around to pass on the genetic traits she has.
