Fluffy Sayan, a silkie hen, lives in Hunt Vally with several other chickens and three children. Kristen and Paul Sayan adopted a young Silkie hen they christened Fluffy, which is a unique characteristic of the breed. Blind in one eye from an infection early in life, Fluffy lives kind of large with the Sayans. "She is extremely friendly and tolerates being carried around constantly," says Kristen.
Fluffy has also become the family's largest egg producer, laying five to seven eggs per week and continuing to lay long into the fall, when their other chickens stop for the year.
