    Here are all of my Show Girls and 2 Silkies from Angie [email protected] She's not on BYC but knows I am posting this I found her through the Show Girl post. Please tell me what you think, I feel as though I got a great variety and am very pleased. What color is the chipmunk one gonna be, partridge?

    Oh edited to say that 10 out of 13 eggs hatched, they were packed very well.


    oh and what can I do about thier dry naked necks, is bag balm good for it?

    Quote:I just could not help myself I kept looking at other peoples and that adorable video on u-yube and fell in love, something about the fluff against the nn is so stinking cute, and the beards make me laugh so hard [​IMG] I named the last SG in the row Abraham because he looks like him to me.

    I still need names for the others though so any suggestions are welcome [​IMG]

    OMG!! They are just adorable! [​IMG]

    As far as the dry skin on the neck, I do not do anything for that, it is usually just flakes and dust from the moisture inside the egg that has dried on their skin and feathers (chick down). It will fall off, or you can take a damp cloth and wipe it off, but it is not necessary. I would not put anything greasy on them. That will only make the feathers greasy and dust and dirt will stick to the greasy stuff.
