    I bought eggs from SilkieSue here on BYC, and hatched out the cutest Showgirl babies. They are 11 days old today.

    What cuties! [​IMG]

    When you call them showgirls, is that a nickname for silkies, or are you actually going to show them somewhere? (New to chickens, here, so if there is lingo, I don't quite have it down xD)

    OMG too stinkin' cute. I was expecting just one picture but instead got an overload of cuteness. The first one looks like a young Abe Lincoln - I mean that in a nice adorable way.

    Quote:They are called Showgirls, they are a Silkie with the NN (naked neck) gene. These are my first SG and there is no going back now. Hopefully SilkieSue will get on the stick and get me some more colors!!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Ohhhh...He does look like Abe Lincoln [​IMG] I also thought they all looked like they had mullet hair cuts from the 80's, short on top and long at the neck.
