    I bought a silkie that had 2 chicks. I had 1 lone silkie chick at home and she adopted it noooooo oproblem is is probably a week or so older than hers. They are in a huge dog pen plenty of room for all of them. The question is now what do I do. when will she lay again do I need to do anything special or shpols I just let nature take its course?

    She'll start laying within a few weeks of hatching usually. It takes some of them 4-6 weeks to start back laying again.
