Can anyone help me here, I have attached (hopefully) a photo showing 4 eggs. The one on the left (large dark brown) is from my Isa Brown, Mrs Bean, the next two are from my black ladies the australorps, but can anyone tell me the last egg? is it from Mr Fluffy Tops (girl) has my silkie girl finally started to lay eggs?

This should explain all :wink: D.

Silkie eggs are usually off white and obviously bigger. The egg on the right is pretty tinted and it is either from a chook coming back into lay, or starting to lay.

hmmmm
don't think its a silkie egg - they are usually cream and have a shiny, waxy layer outside

Did you get all the eggs on one day? As I have had a really small one from one of my Isa Browns once and then they went back to normal size.

It does not look like a silkie as all mine are off white and shiney

Hi All thanks for all your answers, Shayne, the really big egg was layed by my isa on Saturday, then Sunday a normal size egg and as she is the only Isa I have I assume this was hers then. This is probably her 10th egg that she's layed. I weighed the large egg and it comes in at 71g, her normal eggs weigh 54g and the smallest was 13g. She has not layed an egg today (that I can find) the smallest egg was out in front of the chook pen, and all the rest have been in the nesting boxes. Will go on an egg hunt and see if I can find anything as she likes to free range when the other chooks are still locked in.

:thanks:
Karran
