Silkies

Silkie trio

We currently have 5 silkies living in our front garden: 4 hens and a cockerel. We got the cockerel by accident when we bought some young silkies last year – the silkies are a big hit with children on the campsite. Anyway we thought rather than just dispatch him we would see if we could maybe breed them, hence they are all living in our fenced  in front garden. Bobblehead the black silkie is a few years old and is always going broody so we hope she might actually sit on some eggs this year.
