Hello - 2nd year of chicks for us. Last year we had 8 silkies, 4 turned out to be roos and 2 sadly died. This year we decided to add a few more fancy chicks and a few good egg layers so this years chicks include 1 d’uccle, 1 Cochin bantam, 1 m.houdan, 1 frizzle, 3 olive eggers, 3 araucanas, 3 ameraucanas, 4 Black copper Marans and 1 cuckoo maran.... eagerly awaiting to see who will be a he and who will be a she ! My silkies are not the best layers but they are beautiful especially my little splash. Before owning chickens I was deathly afraid of birds.... can’t say I’m cured of that but I do like my own chickens !
