Hi all,
We have a silkie hen that has never layed an egg, she is about a year old. We have another silkie hen that we got at the same time and she started laying about 5 months ago.
I know silkies are slow starters when it comes to laying eggs, but, wanted to see if this is normal.
Thanks

No, we are pretty sure she has never layed an egg.

She is lovely and a great pet and so we don't mind if she never lays, but, just curious if it was normal for a silkie.

Thanks
