I live in the hills outside Perth, in Western Australia. I have a mixed flock of 14 hens at the moment though I will be getting more, and they were chosen to be a rainbow of colour and silly-looking. Well, how much more "silly" can a hen look than a silkie, with that tuft of "hair" falling over her face? They live in a big run but free range over my few acres for a few hours most afternoons. I have several silkies and pekins, also golden wyandotte, arukana, old English game hens and a wicked Indian game hen. I only have hens as I did not want to have to bother about a rooster, also because I did not necessarily want to raise chickens. I already breed Mini Lop rabbits and 3 breeds of cats (my main love there being the Ragdolls), plus have a baby female goat kid which I am hand-raising, so that is probably enough for the moment!
