    We purchased the Silkies from a local hatchery in Blanco, Tx and the rest of the bunch from our local feed shop that stocks Ideal chicks. Everything was bought straight run except for ChonChon and Peepers. We sexed using the 'picking up from the top, watching the feet/reaction' method.

    Ok, the pic with the cat and the rat is a riot. I can see why you say it has no brains. [​IMG]

    Minnie looks like a silver penciled rock to me, but I'm no expert. Nice looking brood you've got there.
