HI Monique, Thanks for getting back with me. I am in the process of deciding what would be the best coop that would work for us. I had a coop along time ago and had a big problem with predators.It was an old coop and since then we knocked it down. I need a secure place for the chickens at night and a run for the day time . I fell in love with the shape of your main coop . When I had chickens I had Rhode Island Reds. I am looking into maybe trying Cochins and Silkies . Can I house Silkies and Cochins together or they have to be seperated ? Thanks .

I am def officially addicted. lol... I have my 5 year old addicted too & he is sitting here next to me right now wanting to pick out a few more. hahaha....

Sorry about the coop, we start our renovation on our 15x15 run tomorrow! I also cut 10" name plates boards out of a 2x4 that I have painted white & I am hand painting the chicken's names w/ little symbols next to their names on them. My son & I are also going to paint our coop a light grey color w/ black trim & I am painting their names in black on the bright white boards! SO EXCITED!! lol...

Oh & here's the link for the pic of our Japanese bantam cross... My post is the one all the way on the bottom...

I am getting anxious about he swap! I just talked to my friend & her mom will be getting back home on Monday & I will be going over there this week to pick up her chickens (she can't physically take care of any of them anymore) &while I am there I am going to try & do some investigating for you on her silkie roo!! Plus I will have quite a few of her hens to bring to the swap as well I think!

Silkies are so neat and cuddly. When other breeds are staring you in the face, it's hard not to fall in love by their beauty. There are a number of other breeds I would like to own, but I try to keep room for my expanding cochin program too! But, I just recently bought 2 olive eggers. I love different colored eggs. Although we hardly eat them, it's just so exciting to walk into the coop to see what color and size eggs I have for the day, lol!!

Sounds good! I would love to bring them & even if they aren't cockerals maybe still trade them for another breed or so. I love them but we are fastly becoming a little "addicted" to silkies the more we research them. hehehe....

Aww! I love it when my kiddos are asleep, the baby is still in our room & I love waking up around 7 to get our oldest ready for pre-k and looking at the baby resting so peacefully.

My friend is supposed to call me tomorrow around lunch time & I will email you with what she tells me. I think she had said that her mom's friend had given him to her as a gift. So I may have to do a little digging for ya!

Haha, ya the real fun thing is that my boys are all REALLY close in age... My oldest will be 5 in only four weeks, our middle son just turned 2 on 8/27, & the baby is 7 months! Not quite 3 years between our oldest & middle; & only 17 months between our middle son & our miracle baby boy. I wanna pull my hair out most days but they always leave me w/ a smile come bed time. lol...

Hehe, I sure am the chicken thief! I am so excited! But I do think that a friend of mine's mom has a silkie roo that she is trying to give away... I can find out for you! (& maybe get you a pic too if she has one!) My dad & mother-in-law both live over in the fort myers area so me & the fam are taking a trip over there for my b-day weekend & picking "Lacey, Velvet, & Sparkle" up on our ride home on Sunday, I couldn't be more stoked!
