I am embarrassed to admit I, too, didn't even like silkies until my friend HHandbasket hatched a few.
Silkies were too odd looking, in pictures, for me to consider them "chickens." Every photo I saw, I just shrugged. Poofy, frou-frou looking things. What's all the hype about those?
But alive and right in front of me, walking around, chirping happily, interacting with HHandbasket and Farmer Lew, and I fell in love.
I managed to hatch three of them back around New Year's Day, but not actually as part of the NYD Hatch. A Buff, a Black, and a ..... mottled one. They're really cute. Not terribly bright, but really, really cute.
