Is it normal for my silkie to be laying an egg every day ?

    I'm not complaining or anything at all, the more eggs the better ! But I thought silkies only lay like an egg every few days or like one a week. My silkie is not full bred however. Her first egg was like a tinted white/ cream egg, which she laid about 2 weeks ago. But she only laid that egg once and since then has been laying a brown egg every single day! Is she laying so many eggs because she is a mix breed?

    My Silkies are pretty good layers. Some better than others, but most will lay for 3 or 4 days, take a day off and be right back at it. What yours is mixed with probably has something to do with it. All of the Silkie mixes I've ever owned have been great littlest layers :)

    Here is two pictures of her for you. I know she is a mix because she doesnt have feathered feet and her feathers are more feathery then fluffy.

    I have five silkies. Three started laying about a month ago and I have been getting three eggs every day. The fridge is full and they taste beautiful.
