I am stuck. I want to have more chickens. I want to get them around next spring. I am going crazy trying to decide what I should do. I know it's a personal choice. I just can't decide . My goal is to have more chickens. I haven't decided if I should get a rooster. I currently have 4 but have thought about keeping 1. He's a Silkie and I don't know about Silkie mixes. I want a few different chickens than I already have. I would like Barred Rock, Araucana and maybe 1 or two more. I haven't decided yet. If I get new chickens do I get them from egg, chick or older. This is what I keep thinking. Or I could keep the Silkie and let him do his job and have some more chickens that way. I don't know. I probably shouldn't be worrying about it now. It's months away. I love my chickens so much and can't wait to add more.
