Can you eat silkie eggs? If so, what are some good recipes for them?
Yes, I eat them all the time. Same recipes as other eggs but use 4 when calls for 2 since they are smaller.
Yes, treat the same as any other egg, just smaller. Maybe 2 or 3 to an extra large egg in a recipe.
Ok Thank you. I just picked up 2 silkies this week and was wondering if I could eat the eggs and if there was a significant difference in flavor compared to that of a leghorn or barred rock...
All chicken eggs have the same insides, the outsides are just different. For example, some eggs are white, some are brown, green, blue ect. But that doesn't make a difference in taste.
You can certainly eat those silkie eggs. The only times that you can't eat your chickens eggs is when you are worming them or if they are on any medication.
Congratulations on the silkies and enjoy those eggs!
So regardless of what breed the hen is I can eat the eggs? Thats good to know... I have Indian runner ducks and i know their eggs are much stronger flavour then the Leghorns I have. I am fairly new to this poultry 'stuff' and am very much interested in everything to do with them. I got my first ducks last summer and about a month ago purchased a breeding pair of leghorns, and now i have silkies... so I was curious, Thanks for the info
Silkie eggs are fabulous!! Just plan on doubling for (or close to doubling) recipies as they tend to be smaller. they are totaly a pain in the neck to peel if you hard boil them, but I've heard that's true for all "really fresh" eggs.
