how many of your birds come from a hatchery? How many are from someone elses flock? how many came from your own personal flock? if from your own how many generations are you in. I have 2 adult hen silkies both from someone elses flock, but just got some chicks (think 25) from Ideal. I plan on getting eggs later in the year from personal breeders. Hoping to close my flock up in the next 2 - 3 years.
