Hi everyone. Decided to join after my last bantam chicken went missing a month ago and I decided that it was time to maybe get some new chicks. My Bantam that went missing her name was Hazel and I had her over a year. And now I'm starting over with new chicks that were silkies. Sadly one already passed away. My guess is the transition from the barn I purchase them from and the two-and-a-half-hour trip to my Valley was very stressful on the poor little thing. And the heat over here was over 100 degrees even though they have been inside. So I have just one little chick and I'm hoping it's a girl. The silkie breed is new to me though hope to find out more while I'm here.
