    ]I am so happy to announce that our 8 silkies arrived from ideal this morning safe and sound! I wasn't even expecting them until tomorrow and had been checking the tracking every hour or so for updates that never happened, so I was shocked to see a missed call from the post office when I woke up this morning! I was so happy to see them all alive and doing well! We have 2 black, 2 buff, 2 blue, and 2 red.

    I LOVE silkies. I can't get them though because my other girls would pick on them. I'm getting campines and a Plymouth rock in April though!:D It's so much fun watching them, isn't it?:jumpy
