About a month ago I joined BYCF and posted about the idea of keeping 2 Silkies in a neighborhood where it is forbidden. I decided to go for it and brought home 2 Silkie chicks when we came home from Maine. I'm not too worried about the neighborhood b/c we are moving at the end of Nov., so I should be able to keep them under wraps until then. I have an 8' fence to keep the nosy neighbors out. A friend of mine ordered several chicks all of which were supposed to be white. Judging by their coloring, including the 2 I got from her, I highly doubt they are. Opinions? right now I have a simple set up using a play yard and Dogloo. I live in MD, so it's still mild here. I am hoping to get an classic Eglu before the cold comes.
