The silkies are just starting to lay decent. Many of them decided to molt last month...

I'm getting an average of 4 eggs a day from 8 hens. Not bad when five of them are 6-9 years old. There are 3 pullets I have marked on the calendar as starting sometime mid month and the earliest. They do have silkie and ameraucana blood and both start laying sometime around 8 months or more. Them being a fall hatch and coming into lay now should shorten that a bit.

Urgh. I didnt even clarify that the 4 eggs were from the large fowl easter eggers and ameraucana.

I always have some silkie eggs no matter the time of year. I have about 32 of them even though some are also elderly.
