My flock consists of 3 leghorn pullets (21 weeks) and 1 silkie pullet (20 weeks). I understand that the leghorns are approaching their egg laying age/size, but was under the impression that the silkie would not begin laying until she was closer to a year old. After waiting patiently for months, my girls blessed me with their first 2 eggs this morning. Of course I am extremely proud and excited. One is large, and the other is about 1/2 the size of the large one, and both are brown. I am confused as to how I got 2 brown eggs, as I thought that leghorns lay only white eggs and the silkie isn't of laying age. Any info would be appreciated.
