    Yep, that is standard for silkies. They still lay brown/light brown eggs though. Technically they are "tinted" eggs.
     
  3. Perfectly normal for a silkie. Aren't they pretty? Like tropical fish.
     
  4. Yes, that is one of their endearing features, all mine have beautiful blue topaz lobes .
    The white silkies look especially pretty.
