Hi Just found this site while trying to find some answers. We're near Cambridge UK and have kept chickens since about October last year. Started with Mr Spikes, Hetty and Martha, 3 partridge Wyandottes, who hatched one buff Silkie earlier this year, and are bringing up two, what were day old, cream legbars! Unfortunately Socks the Silkie keeled over this morning , and I don't know why, so I'm hoping someone on here might be able to convince me that the others aren't all going to do the same now! I still have to tell my 5 year old that his baby chick is no longer with us!
