    Hi everyone. I will be a new chicken mom come August. Our new house has 5. Not sure yet what kind they are but I think they are all hens. My experience with chickens is limited to raising peeps for a few weeks then handing them off. I'm excited to learn what I can to have happy egg laying chickens. I would like to get some silkies once we are settled.

    If you post photos of your 5, at "what breed or gender is this," they can sort it out for you.
