The Silkies Move Outdoors to a New Coop

My Silkies are so happy in their new enclosure.

Earlier this month, I shared images of my cute, fluffy, and very healthy Silkies - 11 chicks that were incubated and hatched right here at my farm, and four adolescent Silkies - all purchased from this year's 2022 Northeastern Poultry Congress, a large poultry show held every year in Springfield, Massachusetts. Upon arrival, they were housed in my stable feed room, where we set up safe, warm brooders. This week, they were all big enough and strong enough to move into a new coop I acquired, refurbished, and repurposed from a recent commercial shoot - it's the perfect Silkie home here at my farm.
