Well I have finally managed to convince my mum that chickens are a good pet to have!

 

And after much deliberation she allowed me to get two chickens!

I had my heart set on a silkie as they just look so peculiar and hilarious, yet adorable

 

So I found a good breeder, and on the weekend I bought my first pair of chickens!

They are two lovely pullets, named maggie and myrtle, and they are only 12 weeks old :lol:

Maggie is the darker looking one, and myrtle is the lighter one!

Myrtle is a partridge, and Maggie is what the breeder said "call it what you like".

He told me its a new colour he is working on, but he has managed to acheive it by pure breeding silkies!

 

so that is all i have on my spectacularly bizarre birds! and i cant wait until they start laying eggs! :lol:

They are adorable! My daughter is also pleading for some chickens. How did you track down a breeder? Are they on the net?

Beautiful birds, I love them too but can't convince my wife. She's worried about her swimming pool. Cheers Clearwing

Hi Dellouisa thanks for the nice words! well i found this site which gives details of silkie chicken breeders, ill grab the link for you...

http://silkiebreeders.webs.com/breedersdirectory.htm

 

its a breeders directory, so hopefully there is a breeder close to you, they are a fantastic breed, gentle, clean and easy to handle and pat =]

 

They are beautiful and I love their names :)

 

Thanks Kaz i thought their names were fitting

whenever i get a pet i wait until i get them and look at them to see what they look like =] so there name suits their character

Totally adorable! We got some silkie chicks for my sister for Christmas. She breeds other purebred chickens and I thought it would make an awesome Christmas gift. I am hoping to get some from her further down the track too, for pets :D

 

So very cute AB! :D
