    I am rehoming 5 of my silkies, leaving me with two whites, Peter- my bearded and his girl, a non bearded. We are getting another 100 sq ft dog kennel for the chickens! [​IMG] . She wants layers and i want some to show. So we ordered from Murray Mcmurray. We currently have 5 chickens that we are keeping. We will not keep all the murray chicks. But, I love naked necks and think they are beautiful. My family makes fun of naked necks and my silkies and says they are ugly and jokes about killing them. they also call star a buzzard and say we should shoot her... [​IMG] . i hate the critism i get for them...Do you think naked necks are ugly? Below is what I ordered from mcmurray. we plan on seperating the show birds from our layers.

    by the way, im just showing in 4h [​IMG] some we just got because i think they are beautiful!!!!

    I have to admit, it took me a while to warm up to turkins, but now I think they cute in their own quirky way. Silkies I thought were UGLY - that is until I saw one in person. Their personalities, and the way they move are really endearing, and now I want some.

    It looks like you have a great assortment of chickens, I think you are going to have a of fun.
