    I have a Silkie Batam who is white. She is 8 months old when do you think she would start laying eggs and then go broody.

    Where are you located?

    How much daylight are you getting right now?

    Are you positive she is really a she?

    When I put her near eggs she looks at them and attempts to sit but doesn't stay long she is to busy staying a round my Sultan rooster.
