At what age do Silkies stop laying? I have 2 Silkie hens that are 5 years old and haven't laid an egg in over a year. Both are from the same hatch and are very healthy, They just aren't laying eggs. One use to be my best broody, but needless to say she no longer goes broody. The other wanted to hatch some eggs so bad she rolled 3 duck eggs under the coop and hatched all three. That was 2 years ago. What's up?
