    [​IMG] i went to the trade/swap meet last fall and i bought a full grown black australorp from a man who claimed it was a silkie, needless to say i didn't argue, i paid my 12 dollars, and got my laying hen, although i dont know much about silkies, i do know that it was not a silkie, so i came across a man who was selling real silkies, and assured me i didn't buy a silkie earlier that day, but i had bought an australorp,,,,, she turned out to be one of my favorite chickens i dont have a pic of her though
