It's kinda late alright had some in October, sure when it's on them it's on them.

this is the proper time for silkies, but we as breeders stop them an breed them in spring, because "we" think its right!
but because our climate is cold an damp, i dont allow mine to sit at this time, chicks dont thrive as well as in the spring.
