This is via google:

At what age do silkie hens start laying and how many eggs will they lay?
Typically hens will start to lay when they are around 5-6 months of age and will approximately 200-300 eggs annually, based on the breed type.

I have two silkies, both of which lay one small white egg early each morning. They have been laying like this for about 6 months now. I think on average, silkies aren't great layers but so far I'm pretty impressed with mine!

A silkie will lay about 2-3 eggs per week.


A really good website that's all about raising chickens is www.mypetchicken.com I got LOADS of info from there.
