    We have one silkie in our flock of 65 chickens. Our daughter named her Puff Ball. She has got to be the dumbest chicken I have ever seen but she is also the sweetest chicken. She kind of is a loner and does her own thing all alone. She often sits in the coop with her head down in the corner and looks like something is wrong. Strange.

    The roo is a brown leghorn, I'll have to bow to the knowledge of the prev posters on the Hamburg. She's sure a pretty bird!

    Quote:Haha the silkies i got b4 them names are Franchesca, Marshmallow, Storm, Fluff, Nugget, SunShine, and Pheobe. I want to name some of my new ones well the ones i think are special, like the showgirls. The silkies i raised are pretty smart they they follow me everywhere, and mine do stay to themselves but my RIR are kinda mean to them too.
