    OK guys.
    I now want a silkie!!! I have been looking at pictures and my cousin has 5 of them and they are soooo sweet!! I want some soo bad!

    But the problem is I have 7 other puillets the will be 4 months old in July. (There growing up....) [​IMG] I would like to get the silkies as chicks so they will be tame and bond with me. [​IMG] I just dont want to go through another annoying integration..... [​IMG]

    Do you think I should just be happy with my babies I already have? Or are silkies easy to integrate? I of course wouldnt out them in until they were the size of my babies (my pullets)

    Any help would be great! [​IMG]

    Espescially silkie experts! [​IMG]

    I thought my daughter was insane when she wanted silkies... I LOVE them now...

    Everyone needs a silkie... Just remember they are sensitive and easily bullied [​IMG]

    I have one that follows me everywhere when I am outside with them.... my sweet little poof balls.

    My 17 year old wanted a white silkie when I started keeping chickens. I found a handicapped hen( another story) and another hen on craiglist. they have been great. My grey splash went broody and hatched a baby duck for us! I also have 3 teenage silkies right now, too. So 5 silkies. They are great mama's. My husband thinks they are the ugliest chickens alive,lol !

    Well I had 3 lost 2 but the one that has survived is sooo cute and the seem to have a bit more personality IMO. Don't get me wrong the other chicks do to but the Silkie just seems to have a bit more spunk.

    Anyway Get the Silkie you'll be glad you did. But remember Chicken Math lol
