I have five Silkies. Had 6, but gave one away. I have four hens 1 rooster. my hens, except one, are skittish but sweet and make the cutest sounds. My one hen, Rocky, the social one, comes right up to me. She falls asleep in my arms a lot and even lets me hold her like a baby. My rooster is very protective and always leads my hens to the best food sources. However, he is aggressive; whenever I approach, he lowers his head and pecks the ground, stamping his feet, clucking madly. Sometimes he just stands there and stares at me, and I think, "Maybe hes nice now" but then, seconds later, he crows and I near about jump out of my skin! If you have silkies, or any other sweetheart chickens, feel free to tell me about it!
