    [​IMG] Here's my latest chicks, hatched yesterday- we think!
    Sneaky Silkie hen went boody much earlier than we had thought!
    She must have got friendly with my black & white Polish Crested Rooster and we just thought he'd been going for little walks with her and showing her his dancing skills! [​IMG]

    Thanks! Yes, I take loads of pics/videos and will keep updating my page. We can't wait to see what features they inherit from their parents. It'll be fascinating.
    I can't believe how adorable they are - and it really was a huge surprise this morning for me! [​IMG]

    Here's a quick video of them.

    Wow!! Those babies are waaayy too cute to call them mutts. My 2 favorite breeds are silkies and spitzhaubens. They would look similar to that if they were to cross. Thanks for the photos!![​IMG]

    Here's the link to my latest video of the silkie/polish crested chicks. They are 12 weeks old now. They have the most adorable turquoise ears like their mom. We think they are both going to be roosters like their daddy. [​IMG]
    That will take us up to 6 crowers, yikes! [​IMG]



    They're a bit camera shy - unlike their daddy, and that's their mom walking away at the end of the video. Her butt is just so fuzzy, she's so cute [​IMG]

    Their father is very beautiful. How is his personality towards chicks and people ?
