We're so proud of our little silkie hen, Snowflake, she laid her first eggs! We went to visit the chickens yesterday and my husband called me over because there were a lot of eggs. There were four large eggs and three itty-bitty eggs. I was just about to lecture my two australorps about these measly eggs, when I realized they were silkie eggs. She laid three in three days. They're light beige and about the size of a half-dollar. We decided to let her keep them and see what she does.
