Well..I guess most of you already know how funny they are to watch, but as first time chicken owners we are amazed at their personalities. We finally have them outside, and I need to post pics because my husband converted our kids old tree house into a coop (he calls it the aviary). He is very proud of the fact that he used scraps to piece it together Beverly hillbillies style. We have 5 white silkies, 5 buff silkies, and 5 blue Cochins. Trying to teach the silkies to use the ladder up and down from the coop is interesting. I love watching the Cochins show off by going up and down a million times while the silkies struggle with it. They really seem to rub it in by climbing each step one by one, but then the next pass they may throw in a few tricks and short cuts. I have to say that after getting to know them all, the buff silkies seem to be the slowest to get things. They may be a little intellectually challenged, but I love them all. Will the silkies ever learn how to use the ramp??
