    I got her at a pet store and forgot to ask how old it was. I doubt they would have known anyway.
    Any guesses?

    Has the Silkie started laying yet? If not I would say it is about 3-5 months old. If it has started laying, I would have to say it's hard to tell

    She looks fully matured so anything above like 5 months I would say.

    I've only had her two days now, so far no eggs.

    She may be stressed and hasn't laid because of that.

    I couldn't say what age but she is definatley a mixed breed. She has no foot feathers.

    She may be stressed out a little. Going from her previous farm all the way to a pet store in california and now in my backyard, I'd be a little stressed out too. I'll let you all know if she lays any eggs within the next week.
