Hi! My name is Victoria. I have 15 chickens and my favorite chicken is my silkie. Her name is belle and she is blind in one eye. She does not run away like the other chickens do when i'am trying to hold her.she is very sweet! I'am glad to be on backyardchickens.com. I do have one question. How long can a duckling hatch from an egg? Edited to remove private information.
