    I've never had silkies so I don't know how close in size they are to a standard egg size. If they're smaller maybe I can fit more than 10 in there! [​IMG]

    I'm not sure about silkie eggs, but I have 9 standard sized hen eggs (maybe a couple on the smaller side) in my mini eco right now and they fit fine. If I tried really hard, I bet I oculd even fit a tenth in there. So, I'd imagine that you could fit at least 10 silkie eggs into one, maybe even closer to 12-14? Hope this helps, maybe someone else has more experience with smaller eggs! [​IMG]
