I have a few cochins that are 15 weeks old and a silkie that is 16 weeks old, what age can i expect these breeds to start laying?
I know it's no time soon as they don't lay till quite late.

My Cochin Bantams were between 19 and 20 weeks when they started on Christmas Eve

My Cochin Luna is 8 months old and has always had a red comb, but alas no eggs :( I'm excited because I've seen my male bantam Cochin, Johnny Cash, mate with her all the time and I would love some chicks from them.

If your roo is mating her then hopefully it won't be much longer for your eggs from her.
