    Hello out there! I'm new here and relatively new to chickens. I have a few hens that I got late last year. I'm enjoying them so much that I've decided to get 2 or 3 more. This time I'm getting chicks, hopefully this month! Totally new to the chick raising and a bit nervous with lots of questions. My favorite breed are the Wyandottes and am thinking I'd like to get one of those for one of my "chick pics". I welcome any suggestions for the others! I like fancy and unusual chickens but I live in town so they have to be able to tolerate "backyard life". [​IMG]

    Silkies and cochins are very beautiful, don't fly to well, and can certainly tolerate ''backyard Life''

    Welcome to the group!!

    Silkies and cochins are very cool and I would love to have one, but boy are they hard to come by. I may be resigned to getting my chicks from a local feed store. Thanks for the welcome! [​IMG]
