    I went to my 4-H/Fundraiser (At the pampered pullets in Ocala,Fl.) and I got these 2 ADORABLE silkie mixes. [​IMG] [​IMG] One's a buff,with a tiny top notch,but the other kinda looks like a silkie- Faverolle mix.. But whatever they are,I love them. Lol,can't stop getting mixes! The Silkie Faverolle mix has both of her wings clipped,but she can get up into a nest box. The second she got to her new home,she laid an egg and went broody. We're going to hatch some phoenix eggs under her and maybe let her raise some frizzle turken chicks. [​IMG] I name the buff one Sapphire and my mom named the other Fawn. I'll post pictures soon when we go to worm them. They're a trip!! [​IMG]

    I wanna go, but I live in NC. [​IMG] I don't know if there are any chicken swaps in my area. Everyone near where I live only keeps horses, cows and goats. [​IMG]
