    someone gave me two white baby silkies. they are so cute. when they grow up do they lay well? how big do they get?

    I believe in the US they are always a bantam breed. They lay OK when they are laying as far as I know, but they often go broody, and a broody doesn't lay eggs as a rule.

    Here is our silkie thread in the breeds forum: You will find plenty about silkes here.
