I have had chickens most my life. I currently have 35 chickens, including silkies. You need more than one chicken. They do not do well alone. I recommend at least 3, but you could probably have 2 and be OK. Silkies can not fly, so will need a secure safe place where predators can not get to them.

I recommend a movable chicken tractor and a small hutch. Depending on your weather, you may need a heat lamp for them during the winter. Your local county extension office can give you information about breeds and the care they need for your area of the country.
