Hello all! I'm new to BYC and have owned chickens for 3 years. I'm on my 2nd flock amd I think I found my favorite breed...bantam silkies!

I have a black hen, Bonnie; and a lavender roo, Clyde. They have recently mated and she is now broody....we'll see what happens!

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! What lovely silkies you have there! I've not kept them myself but a friend has some and they are lovely little birds and very friendly too. They have been great birds for her children who love to let them. Lovely to hear you are enjoying your silkies.

Wish you the very best of luck with them in the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

Welcome to Backyard chickens. Silkies are generally very good broody mamas. You might like to join the "Silkie thread," and learn much more about the breed.
