    Hi. I'm Jean in Paradise, TX. I just started raising barnyard birds a little over a year ago. I currently have 9 guineas, 3 laying hens and 7 Silkies. The Silkies are my favorite. They are so gentle and friendly. I look forward to learning more about caring for these new "pets" by reading this site.

    Welcome!

    I have only silkies and love them. There are great threads specifically on silkies (genetic, showing, etc). I have spent hours reading them and the information is priceless!
