New to raising chickens in Tucson

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, my name is Angela. My daughter came home with 3 chickens and so we are raising them. I know that one is a Silkie but am unsure of the age and breed of the other two. I have always wanted backyard chickens and we are in the process of building our coop.

Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

 

Aww...Silkies are just adorable! Silkies can be challenging however, with closer attention to diet and health, so you might want to stop by our Silkies thread and get to know other Silkie owners there should you need help with yours.... http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/297632/silkie-thread

 

Enjoy your new flock and welcome to ours! :-)

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

If you haven't noticed yet, I am the king of typos.

When I post in the "What Breed Or Gender Is This" section, I do not name hatchery/peoples' hybrids by a "breed" name (for example, Oliver Egger)--they are either a purebred or a mixed breed.

Look at my flock page! http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/bant...
