    I don't know about silkies. If they're six months old, though, I would think they should start laying soon. However, with it being cold and with short days, laying may be delayed. Guess they'll lay when they're ready to lay. [​IMG] The wait for those first eggs is excruciating at times, though. Good luck! [​IMG]
