    My young silkie pullet who hasnt even started to lay yet is takeing care of 3 small silkie chicks i bought. Really weird how she acts around them, she is very careful and cuddles them. Its very cute to watch.

    [​IMG] Haha I know right! I hatched her myself and she is the most nice (i wanted to say "sweetest" but then it might sound like im eating her.) chicken i've ever had. She will follow you around the yard wanting to be held and scrached under her beak. She is kind of like a lil dog really.
