I'm from Essex and have just started to plan and build my chicken house and run.
I'm doing a run with a apex roof on a solid 5inch concrete Base and two courses of brick around the sides back and front, apart from the door area ofc. My main problem seems to be silkies! I'm gonna purchase two silkie hens and 2 polish hens but for the life of me can't find a silkie breeder near me or at least of that sells silkies with a bit of "poof" lol I do like the show looking ones but all that I've seen lack and type of head/facial feathering. Any good breeders or general chicken breeders near me would be totaly appreciated as it's always good to know where to go. Many thanks all x
