An old post but with the Classic Silk to Egg there are many opinions on routine and props etc,I don't like the talk over routine as the silk to egg is a classic on its own,this does nothing to enhance the classic version we all perform.

I like Cody Fisher and Pop Haydns routines and use a combination of those and my own input into my routine.
I only work the corporate market so I use the following.

I use Viking Magic white eggs as they are so real looking,as are Bob Sanders amazing products also, very easy to handle and look great on stage.

I use white for visibility on stage and I spray paint in 10 mins the real brown eggs using a fast drying matt white finish and use these again for visibility,they look so real and are geat for visibility which is crucial anytime we perform this
Brown eggs are not as good for stage and distance in shows I perform.

Viking Magic also has the artificial spots made of silk that with a tiny bit of Blu Tak stick so well to real eggs, they are quite bulgy and look awesome and from about 1 metre look exactly like the silk in the hole at the back, again I have plenty of these in stock at home as well as large diamond red silks. Red Stickers just look naff and cheap and so unconvincing

This effect as we all know plays so strong and is great at any time during your show, I usually use it 2nd or 3rd item in my act after opening with music etc
for newer magicians this effect when presented properly is a show stopper...
