Hello! I am new to BYC (this is my first post). I am going to build a coop in anticipation of getting Silkies and I need some advice. I have been doing SO much research and have come back with quite varying opinions on what type of coop is best for them. How many square feet per Silkie? Do they NEED nest boxes or are they going to pig pile on the floor? Any advise on layout and size requirement would be MUCH appreciated! Also... Maybe I shouldn't combine two questions but.... I am considering getting day olds from my local supply store. Any opinions? I am not planning on SHOWING them, but I would like quality chicks. Has anyone had good or bad experience getting chicks from a store like this? Thanks in advance!
