  1. In this video you will see three chicks that are 2 1/2 weeks old, 1 that is 1 1/2 weeks old (my $62.00 chick [​IMG] ) and a lone 2 day old chick. I could never mix ages in my other bantams but silkies are just so laid back and sweet!!

    Aww watch the itty bitty run in for some of the action!

    I love my silkies/showgirls. When it's time to turn the babies out of the brooder I just plunk them in with everyone else. The babies are usually too scared to go downstairs for a few days, but eventually it's all one big happy family.

    I've even seen newly introduced babies run right into a pile of sleeping s/sg with nary a problem.

    Hey, oldtimegator, you should use the pic of your lavender silkie roo as your avatar. He is sooo beautiful! [​IMG]

    He was only 4 1/2 months old at this pic...I really need to get some good new photos of him, although I can't say that he has changed a lot.

    The funniest thing is that his streamers stand up rather than "stream" back... [​IMG]
