    I'm a newbie. My husband and I love our girls and their men. We have 40 girls, 3 Roos. We live way up north in a place called Alberta, Canada. It's COLD up here. We also are very limited to the breeds that are available. Our grandkids love to come and gather the eggs. We hope to get a Broodie or 2 or 3 this spring so we can hatch out done of our olive or blue eggs.

    So glad you've joined our flock! Nothing better than kids and chickens (says this formerly chicken crazed kid turned chicken crazed grown-up). You'll have to share some pictures of your flock - they sound lovely. If you don't luck out with any broodies you could always try your hand at incubation.

    Continued good luck with your flock. Lots of people get silkies because they are generally super broodies, you can swap out their eggs and put any eggs you want under them. They will hatch and raise as their own.
