    Yep, that's a pullet. She'll probably be giving you eggs soon.

    My silkie started to lay every day/every other day when she came into lay, and she continued laying all through winter. Her eggs weigh about 35g each and are a very pale, pinkish brown off-white colour. I suppose it depends on how big your silkie is, mine is a bantam by Australian standards and she weighs 1.1kg.

    That's a hen, and she looks like she is laying now, or is very (VERY) close. [​IMG] Here is one of my silkie eggs next to a RSL egg (extra large or Jumbo). [​IMG]

    Did you read the post? This bird is 35-40 weeks old. No way is that a cock.
