    I am new to owning silkies. I just want to know if there is a specific way to care for them and are they more needy than other chickens? I would just like to know seeing as how I would love to hatch and raise them. Here's my lil rooster! :frow

    you would raise them the same as regular chickens, I have 4 silkies and besides the hens going broody at least twice a year it seems they are just like any other chicken lol.
