    Im thinking about buying a almost 2yr old white silkie. How much longer would she lay if I do get her?

    I don't know about Silkies, but my guess is
    that chickens are chickens. Although
    I know some are better layers.

    I have chickens from 8 months to nine years.

    I will tell you that some of my chickens that are
    well over five years old are still laying.

    Go figure.

    Get the chicken.
