  1. Just wanted to post the pics of these two cuties. They are only 7 weeks old, but don't they look just like little mini-adult silkies??

    Those are beautiful! Where did you get them from or did you breed them yourself? I just wanna give em a big ole hug! [​IMG]

    Yeah I know what you mean! Im used to getting hatchery silkies that never get a crest that big. I finally took the plunge and got 2 dozen silkies from some great breeders; Amy Piehl and Bobbi Porto! I cant wait till the chicks start looking like a silkie!​

    They are gorgeous! What color are they?
     
  9. They are both very personable and easy to handle. I swear they aren't any taller than 6 inches from the top of their fluffy crest to the ground.

    Yeah...I have about 30-something in that grow-out pen but I carry these 2 around and spoil them. [​IMG]
