    the more I see pics of these little fluff balls the more I am really liking them - but if I get some would they need to be in a coop away from the other birds? I have heard alot that silkies get picked on because they are so fluffy

    Quote:I think you are the one I bought my silkie eggs from afew months back. I have one that is just a doll and was wondering what color she is. Maybe you know who her parents might be. I would love to see them. I'll try to find the link.

    Edited to add link:


    BTW Julie, I cant wait to get some of my own babies from your eggs. Five more days to hatch.

    I have 3 silkies in with large chicks, they are 3 weeks old. They all huddle together, I don't think they know that they are different!
