    I have this one Silkies that go shipped with the others I order. How she slipped in nobody knows. However she is 11 going on 12 weeks old now and I don't think she's very pretty. Looks to me as if she's been threw a shredder to me. Or is she just going threw adolescents? None of the other girls pick on her and she stands her ground. But I still LOVE her.

    So here she is "Puffy the Ugliest Silkies in The Worllllld!"[​IMG]

    Oh gosh, yes, she's going to be so cute when she matures! My best girl is now 3 years old, and gorgeous. [​IMG] Give her time. They definitely go through an ugly "awkward teenage" stage about this time. [​IMG]

    Thank you all for the nice comments. I was becoming a little disappointed with her looks. But you all seem to agree that she's still young. It's like some teenagers. They may look a little homely but blossom into beautiful flowers.
    Thanks again for all your input. You make my day. [​IMG]

    Quote:I'll see what happens and let you know if I want to give her away to you.
    She seems out of place with the others. The only Bantam Silkies, I have. I got these chicks so I could get some eggs from them. I'd need a dozen of her eggs to have for breakfast. [​IMG]
