I picked up these two little sweeties at auction a few weeks ago. I was fortunate to meet the seller. She said that the hens were laying already, a small brown egg.... To date I have not seen a single egg. The more I look at them trhough, the younger they seem. In fact, one still has a baby voiceand rather than a cluck sounds more like a bullfrog. I know the picture isn't the greatest but was hoping someone could give me an estijmate on age. I am guessing about 12 weeks or so. However they are purported to be a Sillkie/Cochin and I know nothing at all about Silkies. I do know though that they do not look a thing like the Silkie pictures found here in the forums.... Nonetheless, they are both very sweet and shy and I don't regrret them for a second.
