    this egg, from I think this silkie...about 2 weeks ago. NO eggs from her since.
    If this egg came from this chicken, who is more than 30 weeks old...how much longer till a silkie lays another egg?

    nobody out there with silkies has an answer for me?

    How often do silkies lay eggs? Really that is the question....

    my silkies seem to lay once every 2-4 days. however they are just starting to lay so im not sure if that had anything to do with it

    Average is every other day, some more often and some less often. Sometimes when they first start there may be a few days or more a between eggs. [​IMG]

    I got two adult Silkie Hens, so far no eggs and I have had them for over a week. I have a nesting box set up and even have a white golf ball in it. Any ideas why they might not be laying yet? One I was told is a year and one half the other is suppose to be about 6 months, neither have layed an egg.[​IMG]
