    My 4 White silkies are about 20 weeks...my 2 blue are a bit younger... I know silkies do not lay as early as other breeds but do they start mating around??? my alph roo is trying to mount my girls.... the girls want nothing to do with him... He seems to have developed faster then any of the others...is this normal or is he just being a bully?Pam

    Normal. As with any other male, he will keep trying until they give in! [​IMG]
