    This is my first attempt at raising chickens, and after a lot of research and reading, decided on Silkies...the local feedstore told me they would get some in March first, this was Feb first when I first asked. So I waited....and waited and waited....finally March 1 arrived. I went to the feedstore (actually went by twice the day before just in case they arrived early) and there were only 3 left!! So, I ended up with 3 silkies, and 3 other chicks that I just had to have. They have been such fun so far! They have distinct personalities and LOVE to be fed different kind of bugs...they actually go crazy for them![​IMG]

    This is Joan Jet...again, hoping she is a "she"...very sweet! She is the lousdest peeper, but the most timid when it comes to being held and eating. She kinda does her own thing...[​IMG]

    We call these 3 Silkies The Triplets...because we can't figure out what else to name them just yet!! They are, by far, the quietest and not near as aggresive as the other 3:

    This is Chester...by far the biggest of the 6! My daughter named her Chester because we think "she" might turn out to be a "he"...if not, Chester just seems to fit. Very laid back, until she thinks you have a bug or cricket...then goes nuts! Always lays by herself because she is soo much bigger I think she is warmer than the other 5.Sweetheart![​IMG]
