    Okay guys, for the longest time I've wanted to do a Children's book about my silkie called "Peanut the Fuzzy Chicken". I wanted to capture some of Peanuts huge personality in the book.

    I'm close to being done so I'm getting super excited!

    Here are a few pages from it, please let me know what you think!

    Haha yes there will be words! These are just the illustrations [​IMG]

    I'm excited that this might actually get the word out about silkies too. Most people don't have a clue that there are even "fuzzy chickens" out there hee hee

    Ok, I called in my three oldest (8, 5.5 and 5) and asked them what they thought and they loved it! I asked them if this looks like a book they would want to read and they all said yes. So I say, keep up the good work and let us know when we can buy a copy!

    Thanks xC0000005! I wish I could say I drew these but I didn't. I only chose the style and content. I worked closely with my illustrator to get these the way they are. Took a ton of drafts but we made it lol
