    Ever wanted to know what a week old Show Girl and a 5 month Show Girl look like together? Here they are.

    cute, in an odd sort of way. I've always wondered, do silkie-type feathers have the insulation and weather-proof quality of regular feathers? Also, with so much exposed skin, how do showgirls do in NY winters?

    Quote:I have heard from many people that the Show Girls have very good cold tolerance. I guess that are no so delicate as people may think. They are very gentle and friendly.

    Yes, I've learned in general that chickens are nearly as fragile as one might think. I'm always amazed at their resilience.

    What a great photo!

    Phyllis is such a great name. I was reading a different thread recently where you mentioned her and I was wondering what she looked like. When I saw you posted a picture of her, I just had to check it out. What a beauty! That little chick is a real cutie, too. I am so jealous!

    Quote:Thanks so much. Phyllis does have a mate, not sure what to call him yet. I am hoping to get one more pair from a new hatch of Show Girls that are a little over a week old now. Show girls are interesting to look at and mine are very laid back. The perfect pet!
