I'm learning that many chicken keepers have differing opinions on many things having to do with chickens. So, I thought I'd ask away... Another local chicken keeper & I were chatting tonight and she was saying that silkies need more care due to their not having standard feathers. That they can not be out in the rain, that they need a heated coop (our average lows here in WV according to weather.com are in the 20s in the coldest months). It rains here throughout the year and at times it will rain on & off for several days. I can't imagine trying to keep the chickens dry all of the time. Are silkies more delicate? I would really appreciate any silkie care/tips you can share since I've already purchased hatching eggs that are supposed to ship next week. I went back and rechecked the breeds section here as well as a few others and they make no mention of these things (which is why I felt OK purchasing the eggs). Thank you!
