Hello, I'm Ryan. We recently decided to get some chickens since we have the space and a few chickens in the neighborhood already. A trio of 2 hens and a rooster. They wander into our gates hard here and there. One of the hens lays eggs in our backyard bushes. We recently got a silkie. Apparently he has a sizzle, so says the lady we got him from. He's about 3 months old and her other roosters, of different variety were picking on him. So she was eager to get the little ones out. We live in Florida so a hot wet climate. We've been keeping him in a coop and since he is so friendly and eager to be held we keep him inside at night. I'm brand new to owning chickens. I suspect we will get some hens to keep him company. Plus the added benefits of eggs and general adorableness. Anyways anytime I want to do some chicken research id always end up at this site. Great advice to be found everywhere and super friendly. So I thought I'd join. Say hi. And sponge off all of your collective expertise. Any tips for silkies and chickens in general for a new owner is much appreciated. Have a wonderful day!
