    I have a dominate hen in my coop. She outranks even the roo in the pecking order.....and he's no pushover. Some females are just born to be Queen.

    Oh! They're just too cute!

    I bought mine when they were two weeks old so I missed this CUTE stage.


    Enjoy your itty bitties!

    Yours look as old as my one. Found it at TSC getting pecked to death. We dont even have silkies around here unless its special order through online. Must have been dropped by mistake into their order...meant just for me. She is doing great and my two week old chicks are fine with her.
