    Are they young layers? If so, search for "wind" or "fart" eggs on here... very informative! [​IMG]

    Are Silkies eggs smaller than a Bantams? I have a small Bantam and her eggs look so small next to my standard girls eggs. It take s2-3 of hers to equal one of the standards in the fry pan....I still love her though!
