    @kvvful – I would also recommend silkies and orpingtons, I have had both for years. The one thing I would advise against with silkies is black roosters, if you want a mellow chicken. I’ve never had a black silkie hen, but all three roosters I have are all pretty nuts. They’re very entertaining as pets, but by no means are they easy-going. I would highly recommend white or buff if you plan on getting silkies; in my experience, all of these Ive ever had have been super mellow, very tame.

    @elliemay1229 Hi, it’s not pine straw, it’s pine shavings.. no problems with acidity…. the pine shavings serve as a carbon binder for the nitrogen rich chicken droppings….

    @HTCSWEOD Yes, I have used Silkies, they are very docile and easy on the fences. They don’t do deep scratching and I turn them into my garden when mature to get the bugs and snails. I switch my chichen patch with my garden patch every year.

    You don’t find that the pine straw increases the acidity in your soil?

    Thank you for this comment… you are absolutely correct! We are messing with our food chemically world wide and facing disaster. People are trading sustainability for immediate wealth and GREED POLLUTES… work with, rather than against nature. I hope you can make a difference in India and that there is a true backyard revolution from an educated American public. Be well!
