    Hi from Live Oak FL.We are starting with 5 silkie chicks and 2 Orpingtons. They are about 3 weeks old and seem to be doing well!When they're a little older and the weather warms up we have a great coop and fenced area for them. Working on making it predator proof.

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

    Best wishes to you and the little ones.

    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]
