    Nice Pic. A good silkie momma is worth her weight in gold! Or at least the cost of a small incubator.[​IMG]
    I find that some of my little bantam hens to be fierce mommas also. Will rip your fingers off if you try to reach under them to check on babes.

    Oh, she is sooo cute! I just got a couple of silkies, and I don't know what sex they are yet. I've got a white one very much like yours, who I'm praying is a girl, and a black one, who I suspect is a boy.......They are the sweetest things.......The white one is super sweet, and the black one is a little more spunky.......

    Good for you! Thanks for the pics, they are all adoreable!

    Quote:[​IMG] They are in this brooder because she would not let the other silkies get to the food they were huddled in a corner afraid of the fierce mamma. I have checked the chicks a couple times but she didnt like it,
