    How many birds do you currently have? Are you wanting silkies for broodies? How large is your coop? As for the colors you should pick which ever appeal to you. Just make sure to post lots of pictures [​IMG]

    I have one bantam chick, and one RIR hen. My coop is pretty big, its actually a chainlink dog pen here is a link to a photo https://www.facebook.com/messages/7...0136481424121.286410.571629120&type=1&theater

    I want silkies because they are too cute!! & i hear they are pretty friendly.
    I love to sit out near the pen with my coffee in the mornings and watch them play (im such a creep lol)

    I really like the white, buff and splash but i guess ill see what catches my eye when i get there. :D

    Ohhh i will deffinatly be posting lots of pics! I love to watch them grow :]]]]
