Surprise Silkie! Too cute!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

My little old broody gal has been sitting just about all summer.  I didn't realize my old roo had lost his "stuff" and let her try with what I thought were fertile eggs.  No go. 

A while back I received some little eggs and stuck a few under her since she wouldn't quit setting.

I went out today like I do everyday to set her down to eat and poo--BTW, extremely yucky!  sickbyc

I saw a broken shell and then a little tiny yellow furry sweetheart!!  I'm so excited that this little momma has finally got a little baby!  woot

Here they are--

It has a little vault and 5 toes!! 
If its yellow now, does that mean it may be white as an adult?

I'll try to get a better pic later.

Just had to share!

Got another pic--

Yep, I'm feeling pretty lucky right now!

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!"

A Polish??  oh, dear, where did that come from?

I received a nice batch of eggs from this person.  I think maybe she did have some polish!

The legs and feet are yellow and she does have 5 toes.

A polish!!!  My DD is going to flip out!

Forgot to ask---Do Polish have feathered legs??

My white silkie was white as a baby, and had the black skin and legs.

I forgot about that black skin.  I don't think she has black skin.  So then she is probably a polish?  How exciting.

I can see DD now trying to "do its hair".  wink

Thats the only reason I asked...

My white silkies are sometimes "creamy" in color, but never that yellow, and even as babies their black skin and dark beaks are definitely noticeable.
