    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I am new to chickens! I have two 3 week old Frizzle Bantams and a 3 week old silver laced wyandotte that I bought from a feed store, and just last night I hatched 6 Silkies from eggs that I bought on Ebay!

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 9

    (3) What breeds do you have? 6 Silkies, 2 Frizzle Bantams and 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? from Pinterest I think!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I have been breeding Havanese Dogs for 11 years, my kennel name is MopTop Havanese. So it seemed only fitting to be MopTop Silkies for my new chickens~ :)

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have been married for 21 years. Two kiddos, Son almost 17 and Daughter almost 20. I also have a photography business.

    Silkies certainly fit under the "Mop top," description. Congratulations on your good hatch - shipped eggs are always a gamble. What color silkies do you have?

    Always great to have another dog person on BYC. We have many breeders, judges,
    handlers, folks in agility, conformation, search & rescue. Many years ago I used to breed & show Cocker Spaniels.

    Hi- I think I have 2 whites, a Partridge, a blue/grey, a splash and one that is unknown! :) The lady that I bought the eggs from labeled the eggs with colors, but I was unable to read some of her writing! For example the grey came out of an egg that I thought was labeled Buff- go figure!

    Awesome! I love photography! I might do it when I get old enough! :D
    1. Hi there! You can call me CC! I decided not to put my real name out there. Welcome to BYC! I hope you enjoy it; I know I do. I am a homeschooler, working on having a homestead, and I own a farming blog with my sister.


      I love the song "Fearless" (I forgot who it's from! :lol:), I love the country and Tennessee. I have a bunny, 12 chickens, 2 ducks, 4 cats, 2 dogs and one Fancy Goldfish. (I don't think I'm forgetting anyone! :lau)
