Post office called at 7:30 this morning. Our newest addition is a dozen assorted silkies. They can from Ideal poultry. This is the second time I've ordered from them and both times the birds arrived alive and healthy. It looks like we got white, black, buff, red, blue and partridge. We plan to keep 5-6 hens and a rooster. I hope to use them to sit on my white rock eggs. I'm brooding them in our new bantam coop I build.
