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.

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.
