    It's time for the weekly photos. Here they are at 4.5 weeks. Unfortunately there will be no outside shots today (except the one where they are in the pen). They have gotten bold and have no fear about running away from me. The white rooster ran into the woods today when I tried to stick him in the grass to photograph him. I'm still hoping for 1 rooster and 4 hens for the EEs, but I'm not so sure how that will turn out. The silkies might all be roosters.

    Great pictures! I love your Silkies ... oh so white! That would last about a day out here with all the dirt and mud I have.

    What did you use for a background for your pictures?

    The background is foam board. Any craft or art store sells it. I make it have 3 sides and a floor so they are relatively trapped while I take their photos. Although occasionally they escape.

    Chick number 3 is an EE/Ameraucana (whatever you want to call it).
