    Hello All,
    I am new to the chicken ownership game. In fact, I had never seen a live chicken up close before 2 weeks ago. My children went to the Poultry Show and came home with three 6 week old Silkies. I have learned so much on this website. I am so glad I found it. Here they are with Titan, our Mini Poodle.[​IMG]

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may like to check out the "Silkie thread," to learn more about the breed. Just put that in the search box and it will pop up for you. You can do the same to find your state thread.

    Silkies are kid favorites and very popular however they can't be accurately sexed before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs.

    Such an adorable picture! [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
