Number of Chickens: 7
Breeds: Silkies.
Names: Pinky (rooster, aka marshmallow) Perky (hen), both named by my dad. There is also the chicks, Peep-Peep, Vanilla and Cloud, the other 4 I am waiting for the genders to show fully for the names.
Coop Type: My house, which they mostly free roam and have free access to outside during the day after 8 am, 11 am if on a Sunday.
Ages of Chicks: The hen is about 12 months old, and the rooster is about 20 months old. The chicks are about 2 months old and were hatched here.
Bedding type: Tiles, carpet, concrete, dirt, grass... My lap... Anything they walk and sleep on.
Bonus info: Hen has gone broody again, so the lonely rooster is laying on my lap with the chicks, being an adorable marshmallow. He is stand-offish when his hen is out and about, but when she is laying an egg or being broody, he turns into the biggest softie ever, following me about and letting me pet and hold him.
