I’ve had a few inquiries as to if we’ve eaten the Silkies yet.
Well, for one thing, we have not eaten them because they are the only ones laying eggs right now, tiny little things, and I’m grateful for those rich little yolks while those fat big hens are either holding out, molting, or hiding them in the hay barn instead of in the coop. Unfortunately the only Silkie rooster drown in the water trough late this summer when the chicken coop was moved. I had hoped to keep a breeding pair. In any case, the four ladies we have, the fluffiest being Margie, are so darling, I don’t think even I can face processing them, groovy black skin and bones or not.
