I get to go get them tommorow, 4 silkies 2 black, and 2 black and brown partrige. If that is how you spell it. I have been wanting a broody and mine will never go broody so I am buying a broody breed. My dh said get 2 well I am getting 4. They are almost a year old they hatched last July. Know I have to go put up a place to keep them from my other girls. Why do we do this to ourselves. I do not drink or smoke I have always said I do not have a addicted bone in my body. Well not true I am ADDICTED TO CHICKENS.
