    So just today I got two silkie hens! They are about a year already and have already been laying at their previous home, I would like to know about when they will get comfortable enough to start laying here!!???

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    Give them a couple weeks to get settled in, they could start laying at anytime. Congratulations!
