    Conehead is over four weeks now and noticed the nice feathering of his feet and well many of the others too. I will keep you posted in weeks to come of their progress in development. This is truly the ugly duckling stage for a silkie.


    The one in the front of this pic is definitly not a silkie. It is a Orp mix of some sort. Maybe with RIR. I think it was a small pullet egg and I thought it was a silkie.\\

    They look so funny at this stage. Sort of like a moth has eaten on a fur coat.
