Well I started with 5 silkie chickens I rescued the owners before me tries putting buckets on them to suffocate them... well when it was dark i went in took the buckets off the chickens.. I bring them home and they sat on eggs. I didn't realize one was a rooster as it never crowed well after he need a hen he crowed.. and so 2 months later I have 25 chickens! 20 of them just hatched this month! I have chicks all over the place. Their Soooooo adorible!
