The silkies do have a tendency to just stand there...or sit there when broody... Hope these two make good parents! And I hope the big guy was doing his job because his girl's eggs are under them...

Thanks. My nails are actually really short right now. Normally I like to have them around the 1/4-3/8 inch length beyond the finger tips. Kind of hard to do when digging around in the dirt though!

The rooster is a good ol mutt. His dad was a blue cochin and his mom was a blue laced red wyandotte. A real nice guy.
