We recently got our first two Silkies. We ADORE them!! Anyway, the hen is about 16 months old. Not sure how old the rooster is (got him from a friend who had several chicks who turned out to be roos), I know he's young though, hasn't started crowing yet, and/but he is a little bigger than the hen. We've had the hen since Sunday... that's 5 days now. She hasn't laid a single egg yet. We've had the rooster since... Tuesday I believe. When do you think she'll start laying? Is there anything I can do?? I'm hoping she'll set, since I've heard/read that they are good setters. Her previous owner collected her eggs and incubated them. I'd rather her raise them up herself, if she will. Pics of the little beauties Cosmo and Kismet... Little Cosmo..
