    Hi everyone, I'm Melissa.I'm a NorCal girl. Here to do my homework so I can begin setting up my backyard farm. It's been my goal for some time now. I have a deal with myself, I have to aim for something for longer than a month, big things more like six, then I can move forward, as it's no longer a fleeting idea! Love to chat and learn from others. Happy chickens!!

    Thank you all. I most definitely have a preference! I love little silkies and frizzles!

    Beautiful birds. I used to have some Black Silkies, and they were very sweet, friendly, cute little birds, and great brooders and mothers. Good luck in getting your Silkies and Frizzles.
