    Muffin, and Pippen are pure white silkie. They were my first hatch. Ice was the broody who hatched them. They are not very friendly, but ounce your holding them, they relax. Their favorite treat is bananas. One is a hen the other is a roo. I've decided that the boy is Pippen, and the hen is Muffin. Theres no real way to tell who started out with what name lol. In the day time when ever you go out to the chicken pen there will be 2 white spots behind the vines, and rose bush on the fence, they will lay there for HOURS! As I'm typing this we are starting month 4. 2 days ago they had their first dust bath. Wow time sure flies!


    Here are the most current pictures, taken about a day ago. The one to the left, and in the front is Muffin, The one to the right, and back is Pippen.

    Love your babies! I've noticed my silkie isn't as friendly as my orpington and dominque but as you said, once I trap her and hold her she's fine. : )
