    Could I get a bantam silkie?

    I have 2 buff orpingtons, 2 delawares, and 2 black australorps, which are all standard hens. Would I be able to introduce a bantam silkie rooster to the flock, and have the eggs be fertilized? Also, my neighborhood doesn't like rooster crowing, so would a no crow collar work?

    Working at a shelter, it is TOO easy to add another animal. I already have a litter box and cat food so what's another cat... that kind of thinking. I should've known from the start "chicken math" would get me bad! My first chicken was a stray at the shelter. The Beginning... I picked up a...

    Rooster breed advice pls

    I raised chickens with a guard goose some 10-12 years ago & I’m planning to start raising chickens again in a year or so. Since I will again utilize a guard goose, I do not need a protective rooster, so I can hopefully get a friendly dual purpose breed. For my 6-8 hens I plan to have: Rhode...

    Adding a few silkies to my flock.

    I'm thinking about adding 2-3 silkies to my mixed flock. I've been reading and know there's the possibility of them being bullied so I understand to keep an eye on that. I've had very good luck with adding new chickens, some that were quite a bit younger than my existing birds. A question I...
