I started out with two Silkies. Don't ever work at a feed store if you are prone to bringing home baby chicks LOL. I brought several of everything home in pairs to add to my flock. A skunk got into the coop and killed her sister. I bought them due to their broodiness. This is how I ended up in Falcon to buy a couple of Silkies her age. They've all been able to free range together. I've only recently put them in another coop due to the snow and drifting, along with introducing a new roo. When it warms up .............if it warms up enough for a good melt.........lol.........they'll all be out together again.
They have great personalities! Peeky, the one with one eye that survived the skunk attack rules the roost and chatters so loud she makes sure you give her plenty of attention. It's been exciting finally hatching a couple chicks but seriously want them to go broody!
