    Hello Chicken lovers!

    I am a newbie from Rantoul. My Chickens reside with my significant other in Odell Illinois. We are the happy owners of 2 Silkie chickens. They are our "kids"
    I am hoping to learn more about color variations/genetics/breed standards/coop design and chicken enrichment. Feel free to drop me a line!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may want to join the Illinois state thread - just put that in the search box and it will pop up. As silkie folks I recommend also the "Silkie thread,". There are also several silkie threads by color "Buff silkies," "Nothing but Patridge silkies," " Paint silkies," etc. Also the "Showgirl thread," showgirls are a variety of silkie produced by a cross with a turken. Unique look - not for every one but, with the silkie character and broody tendencies.
