    White, and if she's like mine, they will be small, cute and so oval shape, they are almost pointed!

    Mine lay white eggs and they are slightly textured. Not as smooth as a silkie or layer egg.

    I have 2 buff laced Polixh & they lay a grocery store size small egg. It is a creamy white, not the bright white of a leghorn and mine do have a silky touch to them.

    It should be a bright white, not creamy white. Should also be quite pointed too.

    Mine lay medium size, beautiful white, smooth eggs that have almost a pearl like iridescent look to them.

    Mine lays a more creamy white than really bright white. And they are a bit rough textured. I know they are hers as she is the only white egg layer I have. She just started laying, tho. I've gotten 3 eggs from her, so maybe they will change a bit as she goes on.

    I will second the pointy, tho!

    My WCB Polish bantam lays a smooth white pointy egg. Sometimes it's a little crooked - i am assuming it's because she has a crooked tail. [​IMG]
