    Hello!
    I have six 8week old chickens, 4 hybrid hens & 2 silkies (yet to find out the sex...)
    I've had to silkies since they were 3 days old, two of the hens at a day old & actually hatched the other two at my work.
    Recently moved outside & learning the life of chickens, instead of being mummas spoilt inside birds!!

    Here's some photo spam of my girlies.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! What lovely pics and adorable pics you have there! They sure do look very happy being outside. I love getting them outdoors and I to some fresh air. It's also great to see them give their wings a good stretch too :D

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your birds in the future and enjoy BYC :frow
