He was all by himself at the feed store. Apparently an owner returned an entire flock, and only he was left: He is so fluffy and cute. Irresistable. And sort of ugly ... but in a, well, fluffy kind of way. From what I've read, Silkies have dark eyes. He has some fluffy feathers, but some regular ones, too. He's pretty friendly, but a little traumatized (emotionally) from the trip home. I don't know if he's a rooster, but I don't have any roos at all, so one adorable fluff ball couldn't be all that bad ... Boo!
