    Through Facebook, the friend of a friend contacted me about three silkies. We got them last night. Cutest things... a partridge rooster, and a white rooster and hen. We have two young silkies... blue and black (can't tell what sex they are yet).

    We are very happy for the new additions!!! [​IMG]

    The little partridge roo whipped my Welsummer roo. Ran around his legs like weave poles and scared him to death. [​IMG]

    Will post pics when I can.

    The white roo and hen stay together constantly. The other little guy runs around like a maniac! I think our two silkie chicks are pullets, too. Looks like we have a flock of five. [​IMG]

    Here's hoping she doesn't do what my little Cochin girl did... Layed maybe 5 eggs and then turned into a badger and went broody [​IMG] [​IMG]

    your partridge boy is cute! I always like when they have different colors [​IMG]
