    These silkies are the best looking ones I have produced from my own birds. I am a happy woman. Can't wait till they reproduce.

    very nice - It is great to see the pay off isn't it ??
    You've done well ---keep it up - I love when people post their adult offspring- All chicks are cute but when you see the older birds like this it shows the true quality .

    They are almost 4 months. Silkies reach maturity at around 7 months. Antique have you seen my baby pics. Look at my Website. Oh and thanks Shari and Jody. It has been a labor of Love. I have one blue pullet that is laying and she has surppased her mother by far. I may show her in the fall.
