    good! Midnight and her sister live with two other silkies that are laying and I found an egg out of the nest box that was different than the silkies and Dawn's eggs, so it was probably hers. Now I am looking for an EE rooster because we are going to use are big Brahma rooster for chicken noodle soup! [​IMG]

    Girl. This particular color, as someone else pointed out is sexable by their plumage color. The males look very different than the females.
