    Well, I shouldn't really call them chicks anymore, they range from 3 months of age up till 8 months of age. But in my eyes, they are still all my chickies..

    My beautiful golden girl, she's a buff orp with no name. Our 3 buff Orps, 2 Delawares and the white rock are our older egg laying pullets. They don't look outstanding or special, but they give us jumbo eggs and we love them for that. Unfortunately, they don't stand out enough in the crowd to be given names. But we pamper and dote on them the same. They are all very sweet, docile and gentle. They get along great with my cochins and silkies.

    We had a lovely sunny crisp winter morning today. A few more sunny days over the weekend, and then its back to sloppy Seattle rain. I'm heading to the Washington State Feather Fanciers Poultry show tomorrow, and I'm buying a few splash Cochin bantam pullets. So excited to meet my new girls.

    Happy chooks.

    BTW, how do silkies roost? They can't fly can they?
