    I saw one of these where we were camping last week and wouldn't mind adding 1 or 2 to my flock. What color eggs do they lay though and what size?

    White eggs. Several polish hens here and all of them lay white eggs.

    Can someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought one could always tell by the earlobes... White earlobes mean white eggs and red earlobes mean brown/tan or another color other than white...

    Of course, Silkies have blue earlobes so that's another thing altogether... Hee hee.

    Chicken Lady - I've heard the same thing about the earlobes... I didn't know silkies had blue ones!!! Their eggs are white though too right?

    Thanks for the replies. I just started selling my eggs (brown) and am not sure if I want to add white to the mix. Does anyone sell both and maybe offer the white at a lesser price?

    Thanks for the chart, cthrash1; I'm going to add this to my favorites.
