Silkie pullet chicks. White and buff Pics

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Here are some of the few whites I hatched from my own birds. They all look really well. The first one is a four month old pullet. I had two pullets and four cockerals hatch in this batch.

Next is a 8 week old. She is going to be great.

Next is a buff that is four months and she hatched from Jody's buffs. I hatched 11 and only got two pullets. Both are clear but this one actually looks the best.

My goodness! Who would have ever thought chickens could look like this???? I think they are too cute to be live animals! The buff is to die for. So absolutely adorable.
My daughter had a fit, she wants some so badly.smile

Thank you. I think the white pullets are awesome too. I will be showing them in the fall and adding them to my breeding pens. I am very pleased with this years Blacks/ whites/ and blues. Still hoping for  improvement in buff and splash. I have one show hen buff and my buff Roo has done very well showing. I have some young hatches from them that are looking promising. As soon as I get a whole group separated I will try and get some pictures.

Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty, well-preserved body. but rather, to skid in sideways, totally worn out and exhausted while shouting loudly "WOW! What a ride!"
