    What color eggs would a Silkie mix lay? All my girls lay brown eggs. Would it depend on the mix?

    Yes. My Silkie-X-Ameraucanas lay blue and green eggs. If your Silkie mated with a darker brown egg layer, then her daughter's eggs would be browner than the normal Silkie.

    Quote:Thank you. I wasn't thinking Silkies lay brown eggs. I don't know why I thought they were blue or green. Thanks for your reply.[​IMG]
