    SILKIES!!!!!!! I found them on craigslist.

    Bantychickmom, the lady behind the pet shop wasn't home and it didn't look like she had anymore anyway. [​IMG]

    I found 1 white rooster, 1 white hen and a blue hen on craigslist. The guy was just selling the rooster but I asked him if he would sell me a hen too, he offered me 2 hens. All 3 for $20. After the proper quarantine time from the rest of my flock, the blue hen will move in with Blind Tiny and the white pair will get a breeding pen.

    [​IMG] I'm so excited! I hope to one day start selling hatching eggs.

    I can't wait to post pictures!!!

    Quote:Me and DH visited Bantychickmom on Saturday and I have to say that I am even more addicted after seeing all the different breeds she has.

    Tammy, I was so surprised when DH said after leaving your house that he loves the Old English and he wants some!

    Just wait until you start breeding the pair...
    You'll want more pairs of different breeds too!
