Ok, so I've been trying to narrow down the birds I like the best and I was really sure that I wanted Red Sexlink hens. Then I spoke to a breeder in my area and she said to read/learn/look at Silkies. And now I think I've changed my mind. Silkies have to be the cutest darn thing I've ever seen...So here's a few question, since I keep reading different things about them. When you pull there eggs, will they peck you? Do they make good first time pets? How many on average eggs do they lay per week? I wouldn't mind if me and my daughter could show them at our State Fair...who should I buy show quality hens from? How do I know what a show quality hen looks like? how long do they live and lay? Is there anything else you think I should know about them, that I haven't already asked...LOL? Sorry for all the questions, I just want to make a good decision before I get our birds...that way we will ALL be happy, us and the girlies.
