I'm a little down, that's why I haven't been on in a while. My dad won't let me get chickens...he thinks that they don't have personalities...and other things that I forget at the moment...my mom doesn't care, as long as she doesn't have to take care of them. My mom is in LOVE with silkies. In fact, she said that if my dad lets me get chickens, she's making me get silkies!! =] Can anyone cheer me up and even give me more info to help me get one. In fact, I went to the zoo and in the children's zoo, there was silkies in SUCH A SMALL PEN!! I could give them more space, and my dad doesn't think we will have enough room for at least two. There was 4 in the zoo pen...I felt bad for them. Any way, can anyone cheer me up?
