Hi! Just getting started with my chickens! I have 9 that are just for pets and will be getting my chicks in May for laying and broilers. The 9 I have now are 5 silkies, only one of them is a hen, and roosters 1 bantam,1 frizzle,1 partridge something....I bought them recently and have been trying to research the breeds. I want to pasture the ones I get in May, once they are old enough. I'm sooo excitied!!! I haven't had chickens in over 15 years and finally have a place for them!!
