    We have had our 3 hens for about 4 months. Two are laying, Hennifer our sussex mix, or silver penciled marans, Not sure what she is:) And Chickoletta our red sex link. However Ming-Ming our silkie has not layed any eggs. I have heard that it takes them a long time to start laying. Although I'm not sure what age she is.
    I will try to post a photo.

    What is the usual age that silkies start to lay

    Silkied widely vary in how long it takes them to lay. Some can take up to a year to lay!

    Typically they don't begin laying until 8 or 9 months old and their eggs are tiny lol.
