    The newest addition here, Wicket! 3 day old silkie chick. Hatched from the eggs I got from jab91864. He had the tiniest egg of all. This one's definitely gonna be a lap chicken [​IMG]

    Here he is chillin on my sheepskin.



    Named after...
    Ya, I'm a Star Wars freak.

    Here's his buddy, Clive who is my roomie's baby lavender turk. He has the strangest personality I've ever seen in a chick. Was weird from day 1, lol. Here is is with a fittingly strange pose and expression in his eyes.
    Enjoy [​IMG]

    I was thinking the same... always loved and wanted a partridge silkie ever since I saw this big amazingly gorgeous partridge roo one time at a poultry show at the local fair. Guess I got real lucky [​IMG]

    HAHAHA! I named some of my chickens after star wars too! Our breeding flocks get themed names. So our bantam barred rocks were prissy sort of names with the rooster being Fabio, then the hens we used barbie names so they were Barbie, Skipper, and Summer.

    But my bantam cochins have a star wars theme! [​IMG] The rooster is Darth Vader, and our hens are Padme and Princess Leia! HAHA!
