    VERY Beautiful Chicks!
    They have beautiful coloring....

    Do you breed them and sell them?

    Thanks! Three years ago, I'd of LOL'd if you told me I'd be into chickens! What happened? [​IMG]

    I may show at our state poultry show next year, still am learning though, and working on facilities, so I can concentrate on these three breeds.

    What happened to the first three? They look like they exploded! Or were left too long under the hairdryer.
    The first thing I thought was, "80's hair band," kinda like Dee Snyder.

    Well, that reminds me......hey silkie folks - some of these just cannot see out. I've taken every precaution to prevent overhead predators, but should I be trimming them, so they can see? (They can see, but it can't be easy!) I've not had such heavy fluff at such a young age!

    I swear, there are a couple that have to be placed in front of the feeder, won't step over the doorstoop, etc, and I attribute that to their mane "blindness."

    What beautiful chicks ... I love your Silkies. However, looking at yours does put perspective on how "un show-quality" mine are. BUT... I love mine anyways, even if their fluff is still trying to figure out that they are Silkies and not pigeons or something.
