    I have 3 blue silkies from a hatchery and they were hatched in April. They have been laying for a while now. How soon did yours go broody after starting to lay?

    Not all Silkies will go broody.
    I have a hundred Silkies and only a handful have ever gone broody.
    You will just have to wait and see since there is no magic age.
