    I live in Oklahoma Canadian county I recently convinced my husband to buy me a chicken coop and a chick for each of my little boys. My aunt raises chickens and has hundreds of them, so I've been around chickens most of my life. I live in a neighborhood and we finally are allowed to have chickens! We get our silkie chicks next week and we are so excited to be apart of the backyard chicken community!

    [​IMG] Silkies are usually a favorite with kids and grown-ups. Hope you will enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. You may want to visit the "Silkie thread." Just put that in the search box above, and it will come up for you.

    That's great to get the kids involved and what better way then for each of them to have their own chicken...you guys are in for a lot of fun!

    G’Day from down under cwyrick1022 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Best wishes to you, your boys and their new feathered friends.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
