lets tell about our chickens! i have one right now because i am just starting out. don't worry, she is "boarding" at chickeypeep101's house. she is a black silkie named, yes, Silkie. she is very old and the top of her beak is missing! she is shy but kind and if you give her love and attention, she will do the same for you. she is at the bottom of the pecking order but when she comes to my house i hope she teaches the new chicks well.
