I KNOW I read a thread on here a while back saying that Silkies don't perch. I remember because 5 out of my 7 chicks turned out to be Silkies and I've been trying to figure out how to modify my coop for them to have a flat space, maybe above the nest boxes. Well, right now they're 36 days old, still in the brooder and the Silkies are perching on a stick I put in! They're in a little line with the D'Uccle and Cochin, just perchin' away. Was the thread about Silkies not perching wrong, or are my Silkies oddballs?
