I'm sure this has been asked before, so I am sorry. Bear with me...I am new! I have a silkie and a sizzle (silkie x cochin) who are both presumed pullets. They are about 8 months old and we started getting eggs about 2 weeks ago. I know for sure that my silkie is laying because I took my sizzle to a 4H poultry show, there was an egg in the coop that wasn't there before and their coop-mate is only 10 weeks old. My question is, without separating them, is there any way to know if my sizzle is also laying? What is a normal laying rate for a silkie? I've gotten an egg a day for the last 5 days straight, which is more than I would expect from one of them as neither are breeds known for fantastic laying. Any advice? I guess my fear is that we have decided too soon that the sizzle is a pullet and not a little cockerel.
