Do silkies lay like a road island red,1 egg per day or do they lay less?
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.
How meany eggs do you get in a week from a silkie?
My oldest silkie is about 5 mos so I'm still waiting got her first egg.
I get like one every other day.
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!
i get the same as energyvet, one egg every other day from my silkie
My black silkie was giving me an egg every day for like 3 days then stop a day or two them do 3 days in a row. My other silkies have yet to lay and they're coming up to a year old. BUT I did not supliment light this winter to keep my flock laying.
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.
Iv been on that before can't figure out how to work it it all ways gos on the wrong thing.
Are you thinking of getting a silkie? Or do you have one? I have four. Three are too young to lay yet one just started laying at around 6 months. Silkies are wonderful chickens! I love mine. I love their nature! So loving!
I'm thinking of getting one.
Be careful, you get one silkie then you want them all.
Well, I think that realsis and a few others have dragged me over to the dark side.......
I did some research and found that silkies do fine with larger fowl....so in addition to a trio of egg laying princesses, I also want to get 2 or 3 silkies too!!
Can't wait til May!!!
Yay! I'm excited for you. So what colors did you want? Hahah I love the splash, I have a buff and a white that are spoiled rotten house pets.
Color really doesn't matter much to me, I love allllllllll the colors!
I just am hoping to find a local breeder (or buy from the hatchery that realsis did), and they have to be hens, and the same approx age as the other birds I get so I can introduce them all at the same time.
Cool! I'm getting chicks in the
Spring might get a silkie!
Silkie silkie silkie!!!! Lol
