    They are supposed to be great chickens. Their temperament is active they will get along with you and they other chickens wonderfully. They are not good in confinement though. They are not good in the cold either, and seeing you are also from western mass i now it gets cold, very cold.

    Silkies do well with cold. As well as Austrolorps, Plymouth Rocks, Wyandottes, and Cochins. :)
