I eventually acquired a young, but already laying silkie. (I traded in a rooster to the woman I got my chicks from bc we can't have them where I live.) The woman told me she isn't a great layer, 2-3 eggs/week. I mostly got her bc she is cool and I was hoping her eggs would motivate the easter eggers and Orpingtons I'd gotten as chicks to lay. She didn't lay for almost 3 weeks after the stress of the move, which I understand is normal. Well, since she's been laying I get an egg almost every single day! A neighbor told me that she could just be backed up with eggs and it will probably taper off. Is this possible? I'd never heard of it and Google isn't helping. I've been getting an egg a day for about two weeks now. I'd also thought it could be one of the other chickens laying, but the eggs all look the same in size and color to me. I thought orpington's would be bigger and darker eggs than the silkie..? And the easter eggers, well I'm hoping they're blue or green eggs! The Easter Eggers are about 6-7 months and the Orpingtons about 5-6 months. I appreciate any input!
