Hello, I have started this post because I find many questions about silkies. and Many question about them keeping me awake and curiouse myself. so my first question about silkies is: When do they start to lay?? I have heard so many different times. some say 9 months others say 5 and I have even hear 12. I just don't know. but silkie hen lay her first egg today and I am trying to find an approximate age of her. so. when do silkies start to lay??
