    I got my first silkies today...Just hopped on craigslist and there they were, just calling my name:) I only meant to get 3 of them, but we didn't have change, so we ended up buying 6 [​IMG]. Figure that might work better anyways since I'm not sure how many are going to be hens. They are about 2 months.

    I'm thinking about trying to breed to my frizzles? I have black frizzle roo and gold colored? hen. Wondering what the frizzle hen and a black silkie would produce... oh well, I have a while before they are read, but guess i can start thinking about it now:)
