    Well, I finally decided to buy one and our Costco is out of them! Another lesson learned! When you see something good at Costco, buy it then or you'll be sorry later!

    Your Sillies.. um I mean Silkies have you well trained. Mine have a "ladder/ramp" to climb to go to sleep - and they go in all by themselves if they want a nice warm silky pile to sleep in at night.

    Ok so today was a first! I have a TEN week old silkie rooster crowing! The only other roos from that batch that are making noise are the silver leghorns. (this reminds me I think both the jubilee orphs are pullets... I might need a roo if Mario lets me keep them!)

    I was stunned. The first thought was w t f... then I thought, I should breed him! What if he passed the trait on and you could pull all the silkie roos at 10 weeks???? I call him purple haze . He is dark blue with a tinge of red in his hat, hes a cutie. huge comb, too.. hrm...

    Hi Everyone!!

    It's been quite a while since I've had time to post. How is everyone? Gosh it's been so long since I've seen you guys. I am only working 4 hours a day now so I will have time to share again! I've missed BYC!

    I have 19 EO eggs and 19 Pita Pinta eggs in my incubator. They went into lockdown today and we expect them to start hatching on Monday. I can't wait to see what comes out! As of 5 days ago, every single egg was fertile and growing. I hope User Error doesn't get in the way of them hatching. I will post pics soon!

    I have an EO flock that are very close to the Spanish standard and want to start sharing them with all of you. After next week we will be selling hatching eggs. If anyone is interested please PM me. As for the Pita Pintas, we are still unsure if we're going to do started pullets or eggs yet. We'll decide that next week too. I can't wait to meet my little babies and share pictures! It's been way too long since we had baby chicks in this house!

    I hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday afternoon and I look forward to getting to know everyone (again)!

    Megan
