    Tomorrow I am getting 4 or 5 new little silkie chicks!! I can't wait, just can't wait! I wish so bad that I could go today but I work from home and don't get done until 4:30. The guy's son has practice tonight so I have to wait until tomorrow!!
    He bought them at an auction, 22 of them and then found out he can't have them where he lives. He said there are yellowish ones, tan ones and reddish one....any guesses on what color they are?


    I posted down int he breeds section and didn't get not a one response, so I thought I would post here!

    Congratulations! Silkies are fun!
    It is possible you are getting Buff, Partridge, and Red
    although I would have to see them to know for sure.

    thats what I would end up doing... so I always order mail order... but then I don't know how many will make it... and I want hens mostly....

    so I end up with 5 of each.... but if I only got 2 of each all the hens will die and I would be left with all roosters.... If I order 5 of each no one ever dies!!​

    Here they are! I ended up getting 5!! They are so cute! The guy had them in a cage (with heat lamps) in the garage, so they were a bit chilly, so I think now they are relaxing and enjoying the heat!
