I've consulted this forum many times when ever I've had an issue with our flock and I finally joined! As my name says, I really love Silkies, they are my favorites. I have two. My black roo King Silkie (who is ill at the moment) and then Girl who is my very white, very fluffy hen! They are both 5 years, we raised them as chicks and they (normally) are very social and friendly!
