    For something fancy to add to your flock, I recommend a japanese, sebright, or mille fleur d'uccles.

    I personally ♡♡love silkies. They are so sweet and fluffy and small.They are very docile. in my avatar I have a pic of one of my Silkie girls when she was a baby. They purr when they are happy and love to cuddle. The have extra toes and black skin. They sleep in a nest and don't roost at night. They will hatch anything for you and can be very broody. They are a lot of fun and very unusual looking. very beautiful. They come in black, white, splash, buff, partridge, blue,(light grey) and some are even lavender. There is no larger counter part for Silkies that I know of. They would make a great addition to a docile flock.

    Buff Brahma bantams, Belgian d'Uccles, and Cochins. Silkies are fragile and can't fly, and didn't work out here for me. There are so many choices though! Mary
