    There is just something about the Buff Silkie Babies that just grab my heartstings and squeez. These little ones were my Halloween Treat. I don't think there are any tricks in there except for the really light ones have turned out to be white. I need to find a different Buff Boy to stop that from happening.

    My DD wants some buff babies BADLY, but so far we've got partridge hatching and the buffs don't make it [​IMG]

    Have a new set of eggs in the bator from swheat, and are buffs. We're very much [​IMG] on this batch!!

    Quote:I saw your birds but missed it when you listed some eggs for auction. You do have beautiful buff's!
    So I went with Steve's. He does have pretty birds and did a great job with shipping!
    (which reminds me, I need to go leave feedback)

    So would those white chicks be recessive whites?

    Buff silkies are adorable, we have one little one (about 6 weeks old or so) that I've taken to calling 'Tubs'. Every time I would go to check on them in the brooder, it seemed like this one was eating [​IMG] The eggs I had gotten were supposed to be all buffs, and the parents were, by looks. However, I had 5 hatch and 4 of them were white [​IMG] Will that make a difference when/if I use this one (Tubs) for breeding? Will it throw white chicks as well? I plan on putting the 'white buffs' in with my white silkies, so that hopefully won't be a problem [​IMG]
