    I just hatched my first silkie. I purchased 8 eggs and this little guy was the only one to hatch. The post office did quite a number on my shipment. I hatched out several of my own EE eggs, so my silkie has buddies.

    Thanks everyone! The egg was marked partridge. I have been wanting silkies forever and finally took the plunge an ordered eggs from another BYC member. I really would like to get more eggs to hatch because I can't have just one [​IMG] I cannot get over how cute it is!

    What a cutie patootie silkie chick! Yes, you need more!

    I have 3 that I got straight run and at 2 months, I find myself crossing my fingers more and more that they are pullets. Can't have any roos in my town, not even adorable silkie roos.
