In the Brooder

I have a chicken book and it has a bunch of chicken breeds in it. Most of the facts I use will be from, Keeping Chickens how to get the best from your chickens, by Jeremy Hobson and Celia Lewis. I will start with one of my favorite chicken breeds... THE SILKIE Silkies are very docile (friendly) and easy to keep. Because of there feathering they should always have access to a dry run and warm housing. Don't let their feathers fool you, they are bad at keeping cool in summer and warm in winter. Also typically their skin color is blue-black. They are polydactyl (that means an extra toe or finger). They have an extra toe on the back of their foot. If you want more facts ask me. I don't want to bore anyone, even though I love reading facts, not everyone does. Goodbye for now.
