    What does a silkie egg look like? I ask because I went out and found my silkie pullet sitting right beside an egg....and if it hers I'll hold off on incubating...if its one of the cochins I'll set it. It looks the same color and size as my cochin hens' eggs...a lil more oblong.

    Well it is small (my cochin hen is small so her eggs are too) and my cochin lays a creamy light light tan egg. So maybe comparing it to my cochin wasn't the best comparison lol. I collected my cochin hens usual egg, out of the open nest box, my other cochin lays in the enclosed nest box....got that one too. This one was on the ground and I would have missed it, had I not stopped to pet Silk.

    All of my cochins are bantams.
