We got our chickies about 2 mos ago, they were 6 weeks old, so are about 14 weeks now. We ended up with a rooster, and have traded him for 2 hens, one I know is laying because I've already gotten 2 eggs from her in 2 days! The other is a Silkie and nothing yet from her. The lady we got the new hens from said they were both about 7 mos old. I've heard so many different answers about what age they start laying that I just don't know what to think!
