I’m still trying to figure out what the attraction is. Soft, cute, cuddly-ok you got me there…..eat all day and poop every where.

In March we saw some Silkies, Wyandottes, and Buff Orpingtons on Craigslist and we wanted some since last year. So we called the person who had them and we went to get some Sunday afternoon and Monday evening.
In these photos the Silkies were only 2 days old and the Wyandottes and Buff Orpingtons were 2 weeks old. They got along just fine.
Then we started to build them a coop so they could go outside. We figured they could all share the coop because they were little. So they could all stay outside together. We used 3 inch screws to hold the boards together and chicken staples so the chicken wire wouldn’t come undone from the post.
The above photo is the floor.
Floor complete with the opening for the chickens.
They are outside all day they have this one branch they like to sit on. They just relax in the morning and evening.
Here they are 17 weeks old
We are still trying to find out who is a hen and who is a rooster on the Silkies, so far we think the white one with a comb is the rooster.
Happy gathering 🙂
