Okay, I'm pretty stupid today for some reason.. At what age do silkies start to lay, is it around 7-8months.. I can't remember!. And. This is probably in the wrong area and I do apologize, if a Silkie or any rooster starts crowing in the middle of the night, what is the reason behind that?? He is fed and watered, and healthy at least I think he is.. FAT! bird.. but why do they crow at night! is it a warning or is the bird just confused? thanks guys in advance.
