    Silkies

    friendly and docile. the only thing is you have to wait until they are around 5-6 months until you know what gender they are.

    You don't want to ask me cause I would tell you to raise all of them.[​IMG] Then get some more breeds.[​IMG]

    If you get a good line of cuckoos they'll lay just about as dark of an egg as the Coppers and won't cost you nearly as much.
