    I'm enjoying mine as well- I have only had chickens for about 4 months, and, like you have a couple that I am not sure how to classify their color.

    My husband was the chicken pro..lol..when he passed, there went all my knowlege! I should have been paying closer attention, he used to use the silkies to hatch the eggs of all his show chickens, but I like them for themselves

    I first got them to use as broodies for my EE's. I was only interested in eggs. It didn't take long for those little silkies to steal my heart and now I can't get enough of them. I'm so sorry you lost your husband. I depend on mine sooooo much! I can't imagine.....
