Hi there!

although I grew up with backyard chooks I haven't yet had my own. I'm about to embark and I'm looking for some advice.

At one time we had some silkies growing up and I do like them. But I'd like some good layers. Is it a viable idea to get 2 or 3 silkie girls and then use them to raise some chicks (sorry, prob ISA Browns)? I'm thinking it gets around the problem of mixing silkies with bigger breeds, gives the kids some pet chooks plus the fun of chicks etc AND a good supply of eggs.

good idea or bad? Thanks in advance for any advice
