Not sure how to put this correctly so I don't get a verbal lashing so here we go... Why do people raise Silkies? I saw a few upclose the other day and they seem kinda ugly to me and don't seem to practical Is it more for hobby/breeding reasons? It can't be for meat or eggs. Right? This is my first year with chicken raising so maybe I just don't get it yet. My primary use for chickens are for the eggs. Please be nice, I just want to know what all the buzz is about.
