Hello. Does anyone have bearded silkie chicks available? I'm located in California and looking to add a few to my small flock. Would probably need shipping unless you're an hour or 2 from 93292. Thank you all!!
Do Silkies dig?
I've got 2 EEs & 2 RIR, they dig which I wouldn't mind but the holes in my back yard is DEEP! I fill holes every evening & got missing dirt. I've found a good use for the empty mulch bags (refill holes); covering around my plants, areas I'm trying to regrow grass, areas that I just filled with mulch/dirt.
Enjoy my chickens but refilling the holes is getting costly, these will be sold & researching what to replace them with. More for pets, not eggs.
Have you asked this question before? If not, then you're the third person with that dilemma, including me. No idea why, but mine would always snuggle together right by the coop. I had to manually put them in every night.
I have no photos of my two Partridge as babies. Bummer! But I remember they had the chipmunk stripes - just don't remember much else - it was 5 years ago. I gave the boy away when he was about 7 months but I still have the old sister and I just love her!
My two Silkies - a Black and the Partridge in the doghouse. Her body is fluffier than the Black.
My Partridge girl when she was 6 months w/her bro. She always has a full fluffy rump - just love it!
The two Silkies again - the Partridge is growing in her new feathers from a molt so she isn't too fluffy here.
