    I have a little Silkie who has just gone broody for the first time. Doesn't she know this isn't a good season for hatching? Evil!

    If any other chicken gets too close to her nest she pecks viciously at them. Lucky she can't see them very well: they are five times her size. She doesn't peck at me, though. I pick her up, and she spreads her little wings and stretches her legs down and lets out the most horrible, guilt-inducing moan you could imagine. Evil!

    However, I know that she'll lose condition if she isn't broken of her broodiness, so I carry her off her nest four or five times a day and put her in the yard with the rest of the flock. She gets distracted for a little while; eats, drinks, poos... but she complains bitterly about me to everyone who will listen. Evil!

    PurpleChicken, I thought all your 'evil silkie' talk was just in fun, but I'm finding out now first hand... and here I thought they were so cute that I hatched out 10 of them.

    I see them over there now in the brooder. Just....staring....at....me.....being...cute....

    What thought are going through their little silkie heads??

    You see my avatar??? Be very afraid!

    I'm having trouble sleeping at night now. Had a nightmare last night that these chicks just kept growing and growing until they were bigger than me and holding me hostage for more attention and food.

    It's too late for me now - I've already fallen under their evil spell of cuteness!

    Evil, evil, evil. We have buff silkie eggs on order. Why??? Because we crack up every time we say "buff silkie". Think about it, little silkie guy in the gym, lifting.....evil. We just can't stand cute and friendly.

    Well, I must say my lil showgirl (half silkie) has a terrible temper. And she is getting FAST at dashing, so she doesnt have to penned up. Pretty soon I won't be able to catch her and she will take over the house. My Mom has definitely fallen under her spell, picks Dash up and CUDDLES her. Dash shivers and PRETENDS she is cold so she can get Mom snuggles and blueberries. (None of the other chickens GET blueberries! They dont get Mom snuggles either for that matter! Heck, I dont even get Mom snuggles anymore!
    She pecks poor Lily (the barred rock three times her size) and Lily just stands there and takes it. sigh...She is taking over the house...She even has the other chicken Fussy under her power. The only other chicken that has not fallen under her spell is Red. Red wants to murder the evil little thing. Perhaps she KNOWS something???? [​IMG]

    How can you not love a face like this?

    It was hard at first but it grows on you.

    Bella is the boss of the flock of Standards and one other banty.

    I am only partially under their spell since I don't have any of my own. I've also never seen one in real life, only pictures that you guys subject me to. So, being only partially under their evil influence, may I comment that their comb, or what passes as one, creeps me out. Didn't somebody on BYC once say it looked like a Star Trek Klingon? Maybe that's the real reason they are evil?

    Yeah, Don, you're right, they're evil and addictive; not at all like my Ameraucanas and Orpingtons. Nope, mine aren't addictive in the least. I'll just keep sending you their eggs to hatch to prove it, too. [​IMG]

    Oh, they do look like Tribbles with Klingon Faces, when you can actually see their faces...

    I have had silkies for only a short while here is what I have noticed.

    The dominant hen is the meanest hen I have ever had.
    The dominant rooster is a wimp compared to the standard roosters I have had, the dominant hen kicks his fluffy but.

    It seems they can have anywhere from 4 to 8 toes.

    Predators like them better than standards, guess those fluffy feathers are easier to chew threw.

    Having them made me put in an order for 25 Jersey Giants for next spring , for balance you see.

    Are they evil, not sure, yet.

    You all are making such great responses I'm not even sure what to say. It warms
    my heart that there are so many of us who see through the silkie hypnosis.

    We must remember that silkies are not really chickens. They are a sinister bird
    developed in labs located in North Korea. I mentioned "silkie" to a Korean friend
    and she just started screaming and shaking. Her Grandad had told her stories
    from the war of how the North used silkies to infiltrate villages and steal babies.



    Klingons and Tribbles .lolololololololol [​IMG]
    Klingons are afraid of silkies!!!!
