    Hi again - thought some of you might like to see my 12 and 13 day old babies (although the pics are at 8 and 9 days old) - they all seem to be doing well so far...

    Here's Crystal (left) and Elvis (right) - Crystal is a little gem - so affectionate and curious, Elvis is very aloof and independent - is it more likely that he's a boy because he has a vaulted skull or is he just as likely to be a girl??


    Here's Buffy (right) - very sweet natured and Pumpkin (left) - just starting to get more friendly


    And Vera (left) - not too sure if she is a he - is very cocky (excuse the pun) and alas we haven't thought of names for the 2 partridge silkies - any ideas would be welcome (preferable girls names, fingers crossed)


    I'm really pleased with them and can't wail till I can start to give em little treats!

    I have one wee silkie about that size. So cute! More part silkie mutts in the incubator.

    They are adorable, be sure to send updated pics when they get a bit older.
