    My silkie just started laying two weeks ago and shes 35 weeks old. If you have a silkie, Has she laid yet? if so how old is she?
    Is my silkie behind or is she just right for a silkie?

    Do you have pics of the egg by chance? I found a new egg today and it's super small and ivory coloured. I have BO'S too and they don't appear to have started laying yet. My 5 buffs and the silkie are all 27 weeks. I have 4 others laying already as well. I'm just trying to figure out who. I also read they can take up to 14 months to lay.
    TIA
