    I went to the feed store yesterday, and yes they had chicks.
    Ugly little buggers. Can't be more than a month or two old. So I asked and the guy said they are Americana? and have blue eggs? but he's not sure. THe lady that knows about the birds had the day off.

    I was wondering...are regular chickens as quiet as my silkies? Every once in a while, around 0630 or 0730 my girls start squacking at each other. It's like a contest. Sometimes it's a duet!
    But since these are "regular sized" chickens, are they louder? do the make much noise?
    My neighbors put up with the occasional squacking from time to time but if it's a constant thing they may get a little bent.

    Anyway, I was thinking of getting a new addition. You think the little one would get beat up too much?

    HA HA HA - going to the feed store is nothing but trouble!

    I have little bantams, and they make as much noise (if not more) than my standards. Not sure about silkies though.

    The chicks at the store are probably EE's

    (Oh and you can't just buy ONE new addition) [​IMG]
