    Hi, my name is Bridgett,

    New, of course, but I've been lurking here for the past 2 weeks... so I thought I might as well join! This site always showed up in my search engine when I typed in questions about my chicks; obviously, this is a knowledgeable chicken forum! [​IMG]

    My parents bought me some chickens 8 years ago (I was in high school), little bantams, but over the years our little flock dwindled down to 1 hen now. So, I'm not quite new to owning chickens, but I definitely know very little about them. Recently, we acquired 3 silkie chicks, so I'm very excited to see them grow up; they're 3 weeks now. I found myself asking a lot of questions about raising them because our hens always took care of the chicks, not me. Haha.

    My main hobby is art... drawing (my avatar is a cropped drawing I did in ~2007), pottery, painting, sculpting, leatherwork, photography... think ya'll get the idea.

    Here's a couple pics of the silkies ... Pretty sure that I have 2 splashes and 1 grey or blue (not sure yet). All are very friendly and my parents or myself handling them, which is nice since I kinda wanted some sociable chickens. :D

    Hello and :welcome

    Glad to have you on board! I have owned chickens for what seems like an age too, but I don't think I even register on the grand scale of poultry knowledgeable-s. :p
    Nice chicks you've got there. Hopefully someone will be able to tell you what they are, someone who knows about silkies!

    There are some threads you might like in the Hobbies section. I find most of them pretty nice to look through, to see other people's art.

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
