Chicken Chicken is the star of the hen house. Full of personality, adventure, and curiosity this chicken remains the best chicken I have ever owned.
We have a chicken coop full of Silkies, which I'll review another time... Amidst the dumb, she is one smart cookie, and loves us as well as the other farm animals. Unlike the other chickens, she has found a way out of the pen and prefers to venture around the property in search of food and friends. More often then not we'll see her pecking about in the pasture with the horses and goats; she even enjoys the neighbor's pasture and their horses!
When I buy a new flock I am most definitely going with this breed because I love their personality and wandering spirits. I love to look out the window and see her walking about, chasing after grasshoppers and running away from the goat. She keeps me laughing and if there were more than one of her... I would always be entertained.
The only problem we have with her is that she hides her eggs! She doesn't lay in the coop and always finds a new laying spot when we find them. One time it took us so long to find them that by the time we did there were 20 eggs there! But, when we do manage to find the eggs in time they are large and very good.
