    Hi there,

    I'm a newer chicken owner! I purchased a new home and it came with 5 chickens and 5 quail. I have absolutely fallen in love with the chickens, they are senior citizens 6-7 years old, occasionally one will make an egg but even though they don't give me those gifts I love them anyways[​IMG][​IMG]. They are all different breeds. I would love to have more bearded white silkies. I'm not a hipster, urban farmer, regular farmer just a girl that loves her chickens! Haha

    I love me a bearded silkie too! Just hatched some a while back..took these photos the other day. Check out your state thread to see if anyone has any chicks, or older. :) I love the splash too!
