If they are first generation crosses (1 pure silkie parent and 1 pure legbar parent) the pullets will all have a single copy of the blue egg gene. Their eggs will be blue/blueish-green.

If they are second generation or later crosses, you have at best a 50% chance of a blue egg.

Best thing is to try and find out the parentage/history of the birds in question.
