Just had the Silkie babies out for photos. Not happy having their pictures taken. They would much prefer to be cuddled.
I am confused about their colors. Two eggs were marked "PA" which I thought Karen had told me was paint. I know paint does not breed true, so I have no idea how these will turn out! Pretty sure they won't look paint though. So one of the paints looks black and I may even have the black and paint confused. I was trying hard to keep them all straight as they hatched, making notes, but when they dried they looked different! The egg marked blue/splash I'm sure who hatched out of there, but this baby looks a lot bluer than splash. So may turn out blue, maybe splash on a blue background? Who knows? I guess the fun will be the journey of discovery. I love them all.
So here they are! I believe this is one from a mystery "PA" egg. Love the attitude! And great leg feathering!
This is the other "PA" chick. If I had to make an uneducated guess, it looks more partridge to me.
Here's my blue splash baby (maybe vaulted skull) - who had to work VERY hard to get out of her shell. She's valiant! (and she had just stepped in poo - sorry!)
Pretty sure this is my vaulted skull black baby
Definitely the vaulted skull Lavender baby
And lastly, my beautiful porcelain sweetie.
