I live in a community of small towns where most folks with chickens, goats, horses and other livestock tend to interact a lot. We all end up buying and selling stock or equipment from one another. Well, a friend of mine had Silkie chicks for sale and I brought home 15 of them almost all of them white, but a handful of them are black. They are as cute as can be and I am glad to finally have some, as my kids have been asking for "the chickens who are in their pajamas" for a while now.....but I am wondering why I read posts saying Silkies are "evil" and such? Anyone want to enlighten this new Silkie owner or are you going to make me find out the hard way????
