    Hello Everyone

    I live in Hickory NC, which is located in the foothills. We have 10 acres with a menagerie of animals. One Clydesdale, 1 mammoth donkey, 4 dogs and 1 Sun Conure(bird) and now my 20 Silkies.

    Received my silkies 3 weeks ago. My husband ordered me 20 and we received 22. Unfortunately I lost 2 of them this past week. I have black, buff, white and partridge. Boy, are they growing fast. I wasn't planning on that many but, I know I will have a few roosters that I will have to find homes for. New to the chickens so any and all suggestions greatly appreciated. Love all the information BYC has to offer!!!
