I'm looking around, and I saw silkies, I have seen a lot of silkies before and now I am thinking about getting some. There is only one problem, I don't know anything about them. I have had chickens before but I don't know what silkies are like. I decided to try and get some because I was told that they are broody and can be pets. That's pretty much all I heard. These are both things I want, a great pet chicken and a broody mom chicken to have a family. So if there is anyone who has experience with them and really knows them, please tell me some things about these fluffy birds.
