    I got two new Silkie hens (1 rooster too), and they're not really friendly at all. I wanted some Silkies so bad, I bought some at the auction Saturday.

    Since they're in a new environment, I'm wondering what are the chances they try to sit this Spring? Are Silkie hens good for sitting?

    If not, I'm thinking about ordering a pair of Silkie chicks from the Farm store. I was so happy over them, but now I'm bummed because they're not too crazy over me yet. lol

    My other chickens are friendly, and I want to raise a set of Silkies to be friendly too.

    I do plan on messing with the other Silkies some, but I doubt they're ever be as friendly as the others I raised.


    Thanks. [​IMG]
