    Hi we recently got this silkie (pictures provided) and we are unsure of how old she is. the person we bought her from said she was a year, but she sounds like a baby chick.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what her age may be?
    P.S. We got her a week ago and she has not laid an egg yet.

    She looks just like my hen, whose age is unknown, but she's been laying for a long time. So I'd guess adult.

    okay, thank you so much. [​IMG]
    We though she was a baby because she sounds so much like our barred rocks when they were baby chicks. :p
