    I decided to join as I just adore chickens... roughly 13 years ago my daughters came home from school and wanted to join 4H. They begged to have ONE chicken. Did they bring home a hen??? NO, they brought me home a Black Brd Silkie ROOSTER!There have been a whole lotta chickens since then! I have Brd Silkies in Black, Blue, Splash and Buff; Japanese in Barred and Black (Looking to buy more SQ black japs); Modern Game Birchen. We have had many other breeds/varieties over the years but you just cant keep them all....
