So I bought 2 silkie hens and two roosters off a breeder from a poultry show back in November 2017. The breeder told me that the birds were around 7 1/2- 8 months old. I have owned the birds ever since. Both roosters started crowing about early January. The dominate rooster started breeding the two hens around a month ago the smaller rooster pretty much hangs out with my other younger silkies. Neither of my hens have ever layed and egg or even acted like they were trying since I have owned them. I thought it may be the weather but it has been in the 60s a few days the last few weeks. Why is it taking so long?Any help is appreciated.
