    Mr. Stud Muffin Rooster Boy did his "business" with one of my pullets yesterday, this morning, I found an egg!! I know its the same pullet because all afternoon she was trying to lay her first egg [​IMG] Since Silkie eggs are so small, I said what the heck and put it in the bator [​IMG] I don't know if its fertile but I figured I would give it a try [​IMG] I did that with my pekin's egg and its developing beautifully [​IMG] I am sooo excited!!

    My 2 silkie hens lay an egg every day, rarely missing. I have two roosters, and still they are not fertile. Good luck to you!

    That's good news! How old is your girl and what colour is her egg? I heard they have a pale cream egg. Is that true?
