    My little Silkie chicks are just so comical. Tiny but full of might! Soon as I put my hand in their brooder bite-bite-bite. [​IMG] I just love them, their attitudes are amazing, they are not frightened at all. Chest bumping my hand with a little feet scratching action. Anyway, anybody else's Silkies full of vim and vigor?

    i have 3. They are calm, but funny. The LOVE to snuggle. We call one of them Dr. Evil b/c she is always pecking at my piercings and my eyelashes! She will go for my eyelashes, then will trill and snuggle on me, like she didnt do anything wrong.

    I have 5 silkie chicks and they are so funny. They are hopping around and over each other. One loves to be held...another is sort of liking it, 2 just give me the stink eye and one stretches its neck cocks its head and looks at me like I'm crazy. They have just discovered the fun of chest bumping. I love my little silkies.

    I have 6 silkies in the brooder box right now. One is 5 weeks older than the others and he is finding his voice! The other 5 hooligans race around the box and generally cause havoc and mayhem until Mumbles steps in to restore law and order. Two like to challenge him and I am pretty sure they are also roosters. Little devils love to come and peck at my hand when I reach in the box! Mumbles was an only hatch from my first incubation so he is very bonded to me and loves to snuggle and be petted by me. He is a big mommas boy but has started to challenge me a little. Love my silkies!!!
