    My name is Jennifer and I am in Grand Rapids MI. I currently have 8 chickens. Unfortunetly I just found out that all 4 of my silkies are roos so I am trying to figure out how to rehome them! My other are 2 barred rocks and 2 SBEL. Those 4 are laying machines! I also have 4 dogs and 3 cats and a husband. My life is very busy but I would have it any other way. When I am not busy with all of that, I work full time for my in-laws business. We sell and manufacture antique Mercedes-Benz parts. I also am an avid cross stitcher! If there is anything else you want to know, just ask! I am pretty much an open book!

    G’Day from down under umaangel00 [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    There are also a couple of craft threads where you will probably find some fellow cross stitchers.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Very nice to meet you Jennifer. Thank you for joining us at Backyard chickens. The bad thing about silkies is they are very hard to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs. If anyone offers sexed chicks, I would back away from them quickly. Even show breeders have difficulty.

    I'm just North of Grand Rapids. I have a pair of white silkies (NOT show quality). The hen is currently laying eggs. If you want to try hatching some eggs, contact me.
