aw I dream of having a few chickens on a bigger piece of land some day
If you goto the Backyard Chickens site, you will find that MANY people have just a few chickens in their backyard. Alot of towns will allow you to have up to 4 or 6, no roosters. Silkies are great for that. They look like cats.
My latest mother with babies
And another one with a cat, so you can see how small they are.
