This is my Silkie Hen. She is a bantam. I only have one.
When the kids were young we tried over and over to get
Silkie hens but all we ever got were roosters.
Then the year I got chicks I got two silkie hens, a white one
and a gray one. I just loved the gray one best.
But something got into my coop and killed my gray one.
I have tried over and over to get more hens but all I have
had has been more roosters.
I am on My Pet Chicken's mailing list and they had the
availability page up for ordering chicks for 2012 so I took the plunge.
On or about May 7th I will be getting 8 Silkie Bantam Chicks. I ordered
Blue ones like these.
Aren't they pretty? This is the color of the one
I liked so much.
Maybe some black ones.
