I am new to raising silkies, I have 12 in my flock. 5 that are over 24 weeks and laying and crowing, and 7 that I hatched from eggs that are now 8 weeks old I got from a breeder. I am having problems identifying my Cuckoo, the cuckoo I hatched from an egg turned out pure white and I don't know if its a defect or a rarity.

G’Day from down under itsalwayssomething :frow Welcome!

This is a link to the Silkie Thread Pork Pie mentioned.

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
