    In the gallery images are 2 chickens and I would like to know a little about them. One is Pic of the Week 2004-feb07. The other is Pic of the Week 2003-feb16.. One is on Page 3 and the other page 6. Thanks for your help and anything you know about these 2 chickens and their characteristics would be very much appreciated. Cindy:)

    The one on page 3 is a Silkie. I can't tell from the other picture what the second one is, though. Silkies are bantams, they aren't prolific layers and go broody ALOT!

    Going broody a lot means you have a bird that may sit and hatch several times a year.

    I don't want to sound stupid, but I don't see any pictures on my computer, and there is no link to the gallery. Is it just my computer?
