    [​IMG] I thought this picture was funny... I let everyone out in the backyard today and my two little Silkies, Gwen and Daisy, found the perfect place to cuddle and dustbathe! That's Gwen's little muff sticking up..

    I love it, but then I have to admit that Silkies are my favorite.

    The chicks arrive at Big R tomorrow & I can hardly keep myself from buying 6 or 8 more Silkies. I lost 3 of my 4 last year & only have Mo left. She is broody right now, but they will be BB Silkie/Mottled Cochin Bantam, since Ish is the only roo in her yard. I was hoping that we would have had a few of our WB Silkie, Nicholas & one of the BB Silkie hens, but he too dies last year.

    I suppose I should just be content with what we have now & not have any more chicks for a while. When I loose one of them it really takes it's emotional toll on me.

    Anyway, great picture, thanks for sharing it. [​IMG]
    God bless & have a great day tomorrow friends.

    She looks more like a beaked mushroom than a silkie![​IMG]

    Yes, drooling chickens are just sooooo attractive![​IMG]

    I just put the camera up to take her photo, and that's what came out of it! It was kind of like "HEY! WTH??"

    I sent that picture to my husband, and he wrote back, "What the hell is that? It looks mean!" [​IMG]
    I said, "No, she's just offended by the flash!"
