    My babies that my daughters Silkie and Mille Fluer d'Uccle hatched together, along with raised together, are growing up! I am very pleased with these ladies so far. I especially am happy with the lacing on the dk. blues feathers. These ladies will be added to my B/B/S Orp. flock in the spring. [​IMG]

    Thank you all! I am very happy with them and excited for spring to come!

    Mahonri - My Millie's are quite lovely, the only problem is with this one is that she has never laid one egg. Nope! Not one and she is a year and a half old. Here is a pic of my Millie rooster. It's a shame the hen won't lay, because they'd make some lovely babies.
