My silkie roo had to go, leaving my 2 frizzled polish and 1 silkie hen by themselves. They have been doing ok, and coninue to lay. Question 1. I am pretty sure my silkie is laying eggs, when do they usually start to sit? This is her first year laying. She was born in Aug. 07 Question 2. Do your frizzled polish hens SCREAM?? I think it is more so now that the roo is gone. But dang they are loud and annoying!! Lol I mean they sound like seagulls out there. Thanks guys!
