    I'm trying to write an add to purswade people to take up the chicken hobby by buying my chicks. (cochins and silkies) The silkies sell fast enough without help, but the cochins I almost have to give away. I am trying to use the argument about the economy and raising your own birds for eggs. I figured a trio of birds is good for a normal family (21 eggs/2 = almost a dozen a week) But I don't know how many three will eat... you think maybe a 50lbs bag a month? [​IMG]

    Any help at all apprechated.

    Is their any other reason to own chickens?? Anything to help me put something together. I did a nice one on silkies once... I'll see if I can find it.

    My Silkie Add:

    Silkies is the largest of the bantam breeds of chickens... and is one of the few birds that are truley petable! They are docile birds and will get along well with other birds, more likely to be picked on rather than picked.
    Silkies are unique amoung birds as there feathers lack the barbs that give feathers there look and flying ability. There feathers look more like hair rather than feathers. It is said that they are more like the feathers there dinosaur ansestors may have had.
    Silkies make very good mothers. They will incubate not only there eggs but eggs of other birds as well. They however arn't the best breed when it comes to egg laying. There eggs are about half the size of a normal chckens egg, and only about 40 or so a year.
    Silkie meat, or black chicken, is a delice in china, and is said to be full of antioxidents. However the burnt black color is a turn off to most in america.
    colors: Black, Blue, Buff, Partridge, white
    What you will get from me with your chicks:
    Box to Take them home.
    1 lbs back of chicken starter
    What you will need to raise your birds:
    a chick water
    a cage
    a heat lamp
    coop for when they get older
