ugh... I normally dont go "AGAINST" what he really feels strongly about..and he RARELY asks me to NOT do something... I feel I have to honor this request due to the fact he doesnt or very rarely asks me to NOT do something...he rarely puts in his request of things I am trying to do or want to do...he's very accomodating to me.. However I just wanted ONE silkie...seriously...just one..just for show.. any type of chick have a neat look to it that is full size that may lay eggs at a decent production rate?? It would be fantastic if we could find a white layer then we'd both be happy... has to be cold hardy (and heat tolerant too).. able to stand confinement (due to winters here) TIA!
