    I started out with a flock of 12 chickens, but now have 43 and am planning to add more this spring!! :) I'm finally finally FINALLY gettings some silkies!! I have wanted them since BEFORE I ever got chickens! I'm so excited! Besides chickens, I like to be craftsy and do art.
    See ya'll around!

    Welcome (formally) to BYC. Glad you decided to (formally) join our flock. I think you will love Silkies. They are adorable, sweet, gentle, friendly, and funny little birds. :eek:)

    Welcome to BYC. I think you will love silkies BUT, other breeds usually bully and peck them because they look so different. You may need to have a coop and run separately for them. Also with big crests obscuring their vision, and the fact that they don't fly - they shouldn't ever be free ranged, they are sitting ducks for predators.

    Yup, I am aware of that, and so have a back-up plan in case they need to be separated. I haven't however heard that they shouldn't be free ranged. What about with supervision?

    Thanks for the greetings everybody!! :)
