Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
That's a decent sized flock you've got there.
Thanks a bunch, I started with 6 and a rooster last year, and I loved it so much I added more this year, and ended up losing all but one of my babies from last year to the road and predators. My mama silkie is nesting on 40 eggs now so we will see if I get some more...

Yikes! The road is why mine ended up penned in a 1/4 acre area surrounded with poultry netting. I got sick of going after them when they started to parade up the road and cross over to the neighbors backyard where I frequently hear fox.
Good luck with the babies!! :love I hope one of mine goes broody in the spring so she can raise some new babies for me too.
