    Hey y'all! I'm Ricki Trotter & I am a new addict of Chickens.
    I have 2 hens Willamena "Willa" (Silkie) & Sookie (Frizzle). I also have 4 chicks (3 months) 2 frizzles- Tara & Jessica & 2 silkies- Holly & Arlene. However I'm pretty sure I've got 3 Roos & one pullet! We live on a small farm in South Georgia and have horses, mini donkeys, sheep, chickens & a cow! Our crop is Pecans! Thanks for letting me join & looking forward to meeting you!

    Hi Ricki Thanks for joining BYC, we are glad you joined us. We all love chickens here and love chatting about them. Showing pictures and asking questions as they come along that we don't have answers to yet. It sounds like you have a nice little farm there in Georgia. We know your new additions will love it.

    Nice to meet you Ricki. You can post photos of your birds at "what breed or gender is this." However, silkies are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs.

    You may also be interested in the "silkie thread." put that in the search box and it will come up for you.

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

    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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
