    Orpington lay brown eggs. That egg looks white, polish lay small- medium white and silkies lay cream/ tinted eggs... So Polish is my guess

    It's definitely not an Orpington egg which are large and brown. Depending on the size of your hand and the lighting in the picture, it could be either a Silkie or a Polish egg.

    I would lean towards it being a Polish egg.

    Is it white or cream? Its hard to tell in your picture. If its white, its definitely from the Polish. If its cream, it looks awfully big for a Silkies first egg, but that would be my guess for a cream colored egg. My BOs laid eggs that were obviously brown :)
