    My Hubby made my silkie chicks a new and much bigger brooder. Also moving them from inside the house to the garage.
    It is HUGE for them. Just had to share. We live in Central FL so it isn't freezing or snowing outside.
    They are so funny running, jumping and flapping wings.
    Ellie is 7 weeks and Moon and Sunshine are 3 weeks

    Here it is, notice the "guard dogs" haha

    Silkies are all normally adorable. Do you know what kind you have?

    Interesting, I don't do silkies anymore but when I did I had blacks, Blue Partridges, Grey's, and some weird color (it's the bird in my profile picture)

    The place I got them from was CRAZY.
    I felt more like it was a rescue operation. Would have taken more but I really want Buff Orpingtons for eggs. These are more for pets for the kids.

    Silkies are a great choice for pets for children. I used mine in 4-H and he was so easy to work with.
