    I am stumped here. [​IMG]
    Do silkies lay an egg that are bantam sized or standard sized? We are finding eggs where the silkies lay that are way lighter than our barred rock eggs, but I would think a silkie would lay a smaller egg.

    My silkie eggs are bantam sized. There is a big difference in the size. At least in my opinion.
