Hi All! I am new to BYC and have found this site so helpful with raising my chickens. I purchased 3 silkie chicks from a local breeder last fall and all three are doing well. Two have turned out to be roosters so I am currently hoping to get rid of one and purchase more chicks as soon as they are available in my area but I am loving being a chicken owner and so anxious for my first egg! Should be any day now! Thanks to everyone for all the helpful information!
