    So as usual I was searching through craigslist and found silkie chicks for sale! I told my mom and she said she is going to pick up 3 blues next week! Well, if I get all my chores done (which I do) I might get three myself! [​IMG] the colors they have are blue black splash buff and white. My mom has a pair of buff already so dont want anymore of those, what would you get? I really like blue and splash [​IMG] but cant pick. [​IMG]

    Also, can four week old silkies go outside in a heated coop with ducklings?

    Quote:well now I can only get two [​IMG] I think I will get a splash and a black, or two splashes since my mom is getting blues. But if I could get three I wpuld get blues. Not sure. I really want one of each color now [​IMG] why must it be so hard?!

    Hmm silkies with ducks may or may not be good ducks can be messy and silkies arent exactly the best at roosting. I keep the odd chicken in with my ducks sometimes like if i have a agreessive rooster the ducks tend to keep him inline till culling time.

    They should be ok i guess just keep an eye on them and make sure they dont get to wet.

    Have fun!

    Love, Peachesbabychick

    do extra chores maybe that will get you up to 3 chicks [​IMG] and ive read that ducks are really messy aswell so might not be the best idea.
