Your looking a a true greenhorn when it come it chickens. Fer ( yeah that's right I said "FER"... That how we roll in north AL) FER starters I do not have a single chicken yet. I have a co-worker that is giving me a couple of Silkies to start out with. What might I have to look forward to with Silkies ? I also plan on getting a couple of good egg layers.... Suggestions would be appreciated. Just keep in mind I have 3 kids(ages are 7, 4 and 2) that I will involve with the care of these chickens. Thanks in advance.
