    Hi all, I'm pretty new to chickens so am hoping for some general tips and info.
    I have a Ko Shamo cockerel, Harry, who lives indoors on my narrow boat and is the tamest little guy ever. I have just got two Silkies, Steve and Susan, who are very free range in my house (asleep on the settee at the moment). I'm planning to house train Steve and Sue at some point soon but at the moment they are still quite flighty (they only moved in 3 days ago) although they will tolerate sitting on my lap for a while - once I've caught them - and have starting taking corn from my hand today so I think we're bonding?!
