yes we brought home two silkies yesterday and my boyfriend is just enthralled with hopw mellow they are. they are more friendly with him on their first day here than the girls we bought as babies that are now eight weeks old! he wants to get rid of them and have all silkies now but the reason i got chicks in the first place was for eggs. do you guys think silkie eggs are big enough to justify keeping them for their eggs? i certainly dont need anymore freeloading pets running around here.
