Hey, so i just convinced my mom to get me some chickens! Originally i was gonna get a dog, but we were short on money. So instead i ordered some silkies. I wanted bantams because they are small and look cool. However i have no chicken experience whatsoever. I do not intend to breed chickens, i just want them as pets. I want to know how to take care of these chickens, what i need to take care of them. i want them to be around for a while. sorry if there is a thread about this somewhere.
