Im thinking of getting a new chicken. Im really thinking about a Silkie but I dont know anyone close who has them. Id really like a white one I think. Ive never owned one and Im wanted to know what those of you who have a silkie can tell me about owning one? I really want a pet chicken that lets me cuddle and love it but is still ok with sleeping in the coop with the other girls at night Im also open to other breeds. I have to admit I really like striking looking birds too so Im not real interested in ones like Barred Rocks, Red Products., etc that look like just a normal ol' chicken. I want one with style! But I really want a sweet lovey side. Id really like one that lays a fair amount of eggs, if thats possible 3/wk is cool. Any advice and pictures of your lovelies would be nice! Thanks!
