It took weeks for the kids to wear down my husband, but he eventually caved and agreed to a few chickens. And so our chicken adventure begins!! in the last 3 days we have started building our chicken coop for our back yard, and brought home 4 chicks( 2 Silkies, 1 EE and 1 Buff Orphingtion) and will soon add 2 more as soon as they arrive! (really excited about these two, speckled sussex) I am Really interested to see what one of the silkie chicks will look like as she has a mix of light yellow and light silver down, the combination makes her look almost green!! Looking forward to all the fun these beauties will bring to our backyard!
