    They are already so different from my pitiful little hatchery birds (who are, of course, still greatly loved). These guys are going to be fabulous when completely feathered out. I've been bribing them with grapes for the last week or so and tonight I introduced them to yogurt. They now come running when I walk by the brooder. They are sweetness embodied!
    Fingers crossed that I have a mix of genders. One is already more assertive. I'm wondering if it is a boy. I'm hoping for two boys and four girls, but my gender luck is really bad. At very least I hope I get at least one of each.

    Let's hope that babies are coming your way next spring. [​IMG]

    Something's not right here. Why would Belle wanna see evil rotten silkies? Are these birds related to her or something. What's going on? This is very disturbing.

    HA! Belle LOVES silkies. It is her secret guilty pleasure. What you don't know is that she is plotting to overthrow the world. This uber-niceness of hers is really just a facade to cover her real intentions. She is, even as I type, gathering hundreds and hundreds of silkie minions to carry out her diabolical plans. BWAAHAAHAAHAAAAAA!!!!

    (Actually, she agreed to be a test hatcher for me when these babies get to laying age. I was just giving her a preview of what would be coming her way next spring. [​IMG] )
