Hello! I am Married mom of five teenagers.

HE just had to have me go look at a neighbors Silkies .. well that done it .. I know have 10!! 2 Buff, 1 Blue, 1 Splash, 1 Black, 1 White, and 4 Partridge. We also have 2 dogs, two chinchillas and my sons other 13 or so various breed fullsize chicken and he has a set of Bantam Cochins I found BYC on Google search when i was researching to see if Silkies were for me, and found it a wealth of information and alot of good people.
