    Quote:we were kidding when we said they aren't chickens, they are but don't look like them. It is kinda the BYC joke.

    Silkies are chickens but in a class thats there own. They have fur like feathers. They are sweet chickens.

    Its another BYC joke. Most people think they are ugly like I think turkens are ugly. PC says he hates them and they are evil but deep down they hypnotized him to love and cherish the silkies.
