I've been lurking now for quite some time, but thought I would finally bite the bullet, quit being scared and say hello (Crazy social anxiety). I'm new to the whole chicken thing, but have had really good help from friends and lurking around here. I recently had a sizzle that turned out to be a roo, lost him to the no crow collar. But I currently have a silkie and a bantam cochin being raised as indoor pets and they've been a blessing. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and become a presence, get to know some people! Here's a couple pictures of my babies. No idea the gender of the silkie yet, but I know it's always a wait and see with them and I think it's too soon to tell, though my intuition is telling me roo.
