I really thought I had my addiction under control. I got the breeds I wanted... leghorns, brahmas, wyandottes, RIR, and a couple mutts that Im not sure what they are. Then two week-ends ago, hubby, aka: THE ENABLER, got the bright idea to hit up the swap meet. And there they were...Silkies! and they were peeping for me to come hither. So we brought them home.OMG!Cute overload!!! I got 3 black, one white, one ? (if any one can tell me what the dark one with the white mixed in is towards the top of the pic, Id be grateful! Im thinking its a blue?) and the little one I think is a partridge. I wasnt going to get him at first. He had quite a few feathers missing from his back but I felt bad for him and hes looking better now. We are building them their own little coop and pen seperate from the others, I intend to spoil them rotten and then get some more! Or maybe Ill just wait, see if I have hens and rooster(s) and wait for the magic to happen! BTW I gave $20 for all six! The guy selling them said he was doing it for his wife-she was supposed to be there and he was supposed to be home watching tv and drinking a cold beer (his words). Im guessing he felt a little dis-gruntled. Fuzzy Butts!
