I'm new :-) Hi everyone!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just joined. I'm melinda. I'm a 36 yo mom of two teen (one in hs, one in college) sons. I'm partially disabled due to a near fatal motorcycle accident which took part my leg :- ( I'm a fairly new chicken mommy. I have 2 buffs orpington and 2 black astrolorps that are around 3 months old in coop now. I also just picked up 6 baby silkies from tractor supply! They are such tiny little things! Look forward to meeting and talking with everyone!![IMG]

Oh my eyes,  that  chick is too stinkin' cute!!  I can't stand it.  What a doll!!.  Silkies  are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age, and sometimes not till they lay or crow.

 

When they are  older you can post photos at  "what breed or gender is this."   You may also like to  check out the "Silkie thread."  just put that in the search box and it should pop up.

Thank you! I have read that the difference is alot in their "hairdo" when they are older. I've frequented this site for some time now but I figured it was time to join and interact instead of just be the peanut gallery. Lol

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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
