Well well WELL!!! Late last night my 26 week old "SQ" White bearded silkie named "Bella"...layed her very first egg!!!! How excited i was when i found it around noon today. So, i go into town and come back about 8 hours later "town is 1hr away and my g/f was shopping
Really i was surprised at my silkies egg's, i thought they layed white eggs...not peach colored ones. And another thing...she layed 2 eggs in ONE day!!! WOW i was told silkies are not "all that great layers" I was expecting soft or small or squishy egg's...but nope..none here. She has a pen all to herself with her boyfriend Ceaser...a one year old BEAUTIFUL D'Uccle rooster. The poor girl didn't know what to do when i picked the first one up and put it back down...she pecked at it to be honest. But i think that was mostly due to the fact they had ran out of food for a couple of hours and she was VERY hungry so when i put down the egg she pecked at it. Bella does not have a nesting box at the moment, so i found the eggs just randomley laying around the pen i have her in. Soon she will be moveing on up.."to a DELUXE appartment"........in the sky......
I noticed one of the eggs has very small clear spot's that are allmost translucent. You can just beaaaaarrrrly make it out..it's the egg on the left. Does this mean anything?? I incubated a few shipped eggs that had the same thing and they were not fertil. I have hopes of takeing these eggs and fireing up the bator on monday!!!! What are the odds do you guy's think my boy ceaser could of been getting to her?? It's just the two of them inside the pen. Well im done ranting, i look forward to seeing many replies!!!
