    Hey everybody! And Tommy...I have a hatch that's going on now from kentuckysilkies eggs...woohooo!! Well as of Day 20 today I have one hatched, 4 pipped, and waiting on the other 5. These are silkie eggs with possibility of showgirls. Well the first baby that has hatched is a showgirl!!!!! Yeah!! That's the ones I'm really after, It is the most gorgeous unusual color!! I'll post pictures when the hatch is done!

    He sure does Jody...I'm hoping to get one the color of the silkie in his avatar. I saw a full pic of him on Tommys site and the color is gorgeous....kinda like a salmon color.

    Yay, Zulu Man scored. Tom was nice enough to take Zulu man from me along with A Black Silkie Rooster. I did not have room for the Show Girls. He had a wonderful disposition so your Show Girls should be very sweet birds. Zulu Man was Partridge. I would love to see photos when your hatch is complete. Congrats.
