So, our love affair with Silkies began back in the Fall of 2010, when we went to the Greensboro Fall poultry show. There was this male Silkie outside walking around, as happy as anything and Allison got to pick him up and I took the photo of her holding him. I posted the picture on BYC and a kind lady by the name of Sandy contacted us and thought we would be perfect to have Silkies.
In January of 2011 we met up with Sandy's husband Tommy in Charlotte and he gave us a box of Silkie eggs to incubate and hatch. This we did, having a success rate of 75% on out first ever hatch!
