    The last two are both RIR x Silkies, one looks like mom (RIR) and the other got dad's white, but with a RIR type pattern on its feathers. [​IMG] I really hope at least one of them is a girl, since mom's one of my favorite chickens and she's really old now, they both have her sweet personality, i'd love to be able to keep one of her babies! She's also only laid 3 eggs since I got her several years ago, and these were the only 2 that hatched...

    I'm partial to silkies! BTW, me thinks Ginny might be Jimmy.

    i'm really hoping she is not a he!!! Little Ariana is also getting some red on her face... It would be my luck that the only 2 chicks i ever get form my RIR hen would be males... [​IMG]
