    Hello, my name is Angela. My daughter came home with 3 chickens and so we are raising them. I know that one is a Silkie but am unsure of the age and breed of the other two. I have always wanted backyard chickens and we are in the process of building our coop.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Aww...Silkies are just adorable! Silkies can be challenging however, with closer attention to diet and health, so you might want to stop by our Silkies thread and get to know other Silkie owners there should you need help with yours.... https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/297632/silkie-thread

    Enjoy your new flock and welcome to ours! :)
