    After the horrible week my dh and I went through we decided that we needed to re-home 2 of the girls we had. Long story.
    Anyways, my bday was Friday and dh was stuck in TX. He surprised me by driving all the way home yesterday. He got in, went right to bed and got up after 4 hours of sleep to drive 2 hours 1 way and get me my present. He was on his hands and knees climbing around the bottom of the pen chasing chicks until he had just the right ones. (Did I mention he's a germaphobe and hates chicken poop?) Now that's true love!

    Anyways, here are my new babies. I completely get the silkie love now! I thought my buff orps were awesome, but they don't have anything on my silkies.

    Pardon us, we're going through the uglies.

    So Cute! I love the scruffy phase, it's so much fun seeing the different feather colors.
