    I have 8 chicks coming the week of July 25 [​IMG] and 4 of those chicks are silkies and I was just wondering what size the eggs are? I've read anywhere from tiny to small. Maybe someone could post a pix of their silkie eggs?????? Thanks!!!!!!

    Silkie eggs are about 1/2 to 3/4 the size of the usual chicken egg. I have 2 bard rocks and my silkie's eggs are a little more than half the size of theirs. [​IMG] I don't have a pic right now, but if you google images for "silkie eggs" it will show you pictures of them next to other eggs.
