The eggs have been purchased and are on their way. We all liked the chickens that were white in color. The chickens with fancy feathers really made us smile! What did we get? White Silkies! They are a bantam breed which means they will be smaller than the average chicken. They are also the silkie breed which means they will have fancy hairdos and fluffy feathers. Here is a picture of the chickens we will be hatching.
