Newbie from O'dell/Rantoul Illinois

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello Chicken lovers! 

 

I am a newbie from Rantoul. My Chickens reside with my significant other in Odell Illinois. We are the happy owners of 2 Silkie chickens. They are our "kids"

I am hoping to learn more about color variations/genetics/breed standards/coop design and chicken enrichment. Feel free to drop me a line!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to Backyard chickens.    You may want to join the Illinois state thread  - just put that in the search box and it will pop up.  As silkie folks  I recommend  also the  "Silkie thread,".     There are also several silkie threads  by color  "Buff silkies,"   "Nothing but Patridge silkies,"   " Paint silkies,"  etc.  Also  the "Showgirl thread," showgirls are a variety of silkie  produced by a cross with a turken.   Unique look - not for every one but,  with  the silkie character and broody tendencies.
