I would like to introduce you to the newest addition to our family. On my daily errands last Friday, whilst collecting the chicken feed from our local produce store, I noticed this lovely little bird still did not have a home. I met her 2 weeks prior when collecting chicken feed. She stood out to me then however I was apprehensive about purchasing her as we do not want another rooster. I know that it is possible that she may not be a hen as Silkies cannot be sexed until 4-5 months when the signs of sex begin to become more apparent but my gut and her behavious have lead me to believe that she is a hen.
She is the quietest chicken I have ever brought home. I am tempted to keep her as my housepet.
