    Well, after 2 years of trying to hatch shipped eggs, I finally have a Silkie!! It is 10 weeks old this weekend, and just adorable. At least I think it is. Everyone else at the house says it's the ugliest chicken they have ever seen. They have no sense of beauty. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    She went broody during an intense heatwave. Temps 100+. She wouldn't leave the box, and I'm thinking the heat was just too much for her. I am building a pen closer to the house and installing a ceiling fan for my next batch of Silkies.
