    We just moved from town where chickens were not allowed...to the country. We recently acquired 8 silkies. Seven are blue and one is black. My 5 year old little boy loves checking for their little eggs every day. They are so friendly and even the rooster eats from my hand. We are looking forward to hatching eggs in the spring.
