Howdy! I have worked with animals my whole life and career, but these are my "gasp" FIRST chickens!! Actually they are supposed to be for my daughter, but I am equally excited about them, and also excited to find BYC and other chicken enthusiasts!! Thanks for so much great reading material!! Our 8 new Silkie girls (hopefully) that arrived this week from mypetchicken dot com in wonderful health!! Unfortunately it seems as if new BYC members cannot post photos Anyone know when the link/pic posting ban gets lifted??
