Hello from Australia. with Pictures of my Silkies.

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Christie Loves Silkies, Sep 13, 2011.

  1. hi,I'm new to BYC. I don't really know what to say, but yeah I also have a few questions about Silkies.

    Well anyways I have two Silkie roosters who I love to death, and I have two Silkie hens. they are not show quality and dont look as near as good as everyone elses on here but they are my pets and i love them. And i have 7 babie silkies, one of them is 8 weeks old and the others are about 6 weeks old.

    anywho onto my questions:

    I found on my Hen who is called Lily, when I bought her from a local breedeer her toes were curved, and they still are is it normal for some silkies to have curved toes?

    this is Lily on the first day I got her, Horrible picture of me but her toes were really curved then

    and this is her again a couple months on [​IMG]

    To my other girl Izzy, she became a Mum for the first time about 8 weeks ago, she hatched about 12 or 11 babies but cause it was when it was winter over here we lost 10 of them [​IMG] it was very sad.

    When My mum first bought me Izzy [​IMG]

    And this is what she turned into:

    Izzy and her first lot of babies Lily got a little bit jealous:

    This is Bee, my mum bought him for me when he was about 6 maybe 8 weeks:
    This is him on the first day of having him:

    this is Bee a few months ago.

    this is Bella, who is also a rooster, yes its called Bella cause I think his beautiful [​IMG] my ex Boyfriend bought me him and rasied him together.
    I love this Picture of him so much.

    Ans this is Bella now:

    I have a lot of my silkie babies but there is too many to choose from D:

    I love all of my silkies and I dont care what people think about them cause I love them more than anything in the world [​IMG]
