    hey everyone,

    i just wanted to post pics of my silkies that I got from Cackle. They actually turned out better than I thought they would.

    I wish I had taken pictures of the roo that I had but gave him away for i could do so. He was a really handsome guy.

    i know they are not show quality but they are pretty cute.

    These are from Cackle Hatchery and are almost 16 weeks old.

    Those are the best hatchery Silkies I have ever seen, especially the first one. Do they have all of the right stuff - black skin, 5 toes, blue earlobes?

    These are from whatever hatchery TSC got chicks from... Both are cockerels and both I had to get rid of. Turnip (1st picture) went to a friend who was looking for a rooster and she tells me he's so sweet and cuddly -- as I was hoping he'd be _- and she hugs him every day. Mushroom (2nd) just went to the auction the other day. He wasn't so nice... And would NOT leave Penelope and Iris alone.. I won't say what I was thinking. [​IMG]

    Anyway, both have single combs, and Mushroom was bearded while Turnip wasn't.

    I have never heard or seen any SQ or BQ silkies from a hatchery.
