So I've had my layers coop for about a year now and I am looking at starting my own Breeding pen/coop. I was going for Ameraucana then thought of Silkies. i have a friend down the road that has Splash, Blue, and Black show quality Silkies and am thinking of buying eggs to hatch from her. Some of her silkies have Lavender gene. But the real question is, Are Silkies a good way to go for your first breeding pen? Thanks!
