Hey out there, BYCers, looking to get to know silkie breeders in Wa. I'm a newby at raising poultry, my first birds are turning a year in Feb. Have some real nice layers giving lots of eggs. My heart is in bearded silkies though. Have been looking around for the right birds to start a breeding flock for the past year too, although my first set of silks are just 5 months old. My second set is one chick I hatched from my new bator about 2 weeks ago. Have set plans to get eggs from Cat Dance Silkies in a week and look forward to what will come from those. Hoping to get to know some in state breeders that would be willing to share knowledge and answer questions. Would love to foster some friendships in the years to come with people as passionate about beards as I am. My Name is Aaron, look forward to hearing back.
