    Quote:I was planning on getting one from vfem... I love the look. Do they blend well with standard sized hens (my cochin is a bantam)

    I added four silkies and three BO to my small flock in August. A friend of mine who I met through here gave them to me. How kind huh?
    Anyway, I really love my BOs. They are really in tune with us and follow us around. They are very sweet and very pretty. I love my silkies too, but all around I love my BOs in a different way.

    My Silkies live with my EEs and RIRs and everybody gets along fine. I did have to put a chicken saddle on my EE roo's favorite Silkie hen b/c he mated with her all the time at first and would make her back raw, but now she's just part of the flock.

    Hehe, no love for delawares. I like the roos more than the hens. Any pics are more than welcomed.
