How many eggs do you get from your pure bred silkies per week and per hen?
My hatchery silkies each generally lay 5 eggs per week when they're not broody...
They take forever to start laying, and my one that has started, laid really well the first week, and has taken 4 days off this week :/ It all depends I guess
I have five Silkie hens, & one rooster I get between 12 & 18 eggs a week. I had three that went broody and were sitting on 9 eggs for a couple weeks. Then they decided to kick the eggs out and not sit on them over the course of a week. Maybe they weren't broody after all.
