White SilkieAfter almost two years I finally have my chickens. I first started hinting that they'd be a nice addition to our little urban garden after doing a story in 2008 on "City Chickens." My husband was firmly against it since we weren't a year into parenthood and had two dogs and two cats. Soooo, I was resigned to oooo and ahhhh over others' poultry prizes. Then just last week as I again mentioned another chick adoption, he suddenly gave in. It's likely because our little guy is almost three now so less hands on work, and dad has his own beer brewing hobby now, but I'll take them any way I can get them!
So not a bad way to start out April. I hope to share more information on these particular breeds, and update on their progress and all it involves, as well as a bit of gardening!
