My silkies have been sitting on golfballs for weeks!I finally bought some chicks for them. I swapped them out last night.

Americuana? And my recycled strawberry pot feeder! It works perfectly!

Cochin or Maran? It is an odd angle, I still have a hard time telling them apart without seeing the feet.

Congrats! BEware that is a disaster waiting to happen! I would separate quick...the moms will fight for the babies, often killing the babies!

The silkie looks like a blue silkie and I think the rest of the chicks you are right on the breed! SO CUTE!!!!

Thank you! The lady I bought from had so many birds, it was so fun to go on the tour of her place. She had blue, splash, black, and white silkies. I remember seeing a white roo but there was so much to see that it all blurs together. I know that some of them were show quality. I had decided not to get any more silkies, but how could I not get that one?

I wish I could have spent more time looking, but I had a toddler who was ready for his nap. Plus, her emu bit him (my fault) and that didn't help matters any

How many people can say they were bitten by an emu? (He was okay, I promise).​

Should I put up a ring of chicken wire, and put a silkie in it along with half of the chicks? Will she still care for them, even booted from the nest box?

Or should I put one silkie in with the bunny, and leave the other with 8 chicks?

What absolutely DARLING photos! I especially love the one with the little chickie butt sticking out from those fluffy girls. Silkies just look so soft and huggy.
