    I'm a new member and I look forward to sharing and learning from you all.I have obtained a sweet Silkie hen and a Silkie rooster that no one wanted. So far he is pretty kind to her. She just layed her first egg 3 days ago. [​IMG]I've gotten an egg a day since then.

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

    Congratulations on those first eggs! [​IMG]

    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.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. 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]

    that's great for a silkie hen. Usually they lay a few eggs and then go broody. Since you have a roo, the eggs would be fertile.

    Thanks everyone. I wasn't even sure if folks still used these forums since the advent of Facebook and Twitter. I like this setting so much better
