I have Silkco (Silkie/Cochin cross) pullets that are about 3 months or so old. When do these breeds usually start laying? Will they be broody?

Both Silkies and Cochins are known for going broody but neither are generally good layers.

I bet they're cute!

So possibly by next spring then huh?

Well I would hope by spring & they would be fertilized eggs. These guys are really pretty!

fertile eggs and eating eggs are all the same eggs. neither make a difference in how a breed lays or doesn't lay.

I realize that....and
Yes I have 5 silkie/cochin roos.​

I don't know about silkie/cochins but my standard cochins are 25 weeks and nothing. All the other chicks from the same order have started except them. But i don't care they are still sweet little beauties.
