    Nice lookers! Good job on hatching, photography- I just learned that silkies have 5 toes, how funny. It never connected that the toe count was different on birds - hah ah

    You did great pics for your first time. Not blurry at all like mine! Nice looking chicks.
    Funny I didn't know there were others out there that liked Turkens as much as I do. I have 2 girls, 1 blond and 1 black. The eggs come out darker brown at one end and get lighter twards the other end. I call it tye-dye. Very cool.
    My last name is Durkan so I had to have "The Durkan Turkens"!!!! LOL!
