    Puff of Fluff Chillin' With My Peeps

    I received some new additions today [​IMG] and I just had [​IMG] to take pics in the dark to try to find out what they are [​IMG] Couldn't wait until morning [​IMG] . One of my sons brought them to my place today and put them in a dog pen I have (no dogs in there), while I was at work. I just had to see what they were [​IMG] so I took pics of them in the dark. Poor things weren't sure what to think of the flash.
    I now have 3 - more Chinese geese [​IMG] . I think at least one is a goose and I am [​IMG] the other two are too, but kind of doubt it. Then there are a couple of funny looking, white, very fluffy, [​IMG] what they are. One looks like it might be a roo and the other maybe a hen but I am clueless on these, whatever they are. Then there is an absolutely gorgeous (ok, in the dark he is gorgeous) roo of some kind? And 2 hens that in the dark look to possible be EE's. I have pics that turned out decent for it being very dark outside. Any help in identifying these would be greatly appreciated. Here is the album they are in:

    1 & 7 are the geese 2. Is the geese with the funny fluffy, white things in the corner. 3,4,5,6 & 9 are the roo and two hens from different angles. 8, 10 & 11 are the funny, fluffy white things. 10 & 11 are the better pics of them at this time. Any guesses please?

    Silkies! Oh I hope so. That would be great [​IMG] . Do they require different care or food then my Puffy Cheeks I already have? Puffy Cheeks, were sold to me by feed store as Ameraucanas.

    Chinese geese, EEs, and a pair of nb white silkies. Silkies don't require more care, but they are more susceptible to preditors, as the crest blocks their vision.

    "Ameraucanas" sold by feed stores are EEs.

    Quote:Thank you, [​IMG] , [​IMG] Silkies and now I know I have EE's [​IMG]. Will the 2" X 4" size hole, No Climb livestock panels 5' work good for them? What does the nb stand for?

    Are those the pens you have them in? NB stands for non bearded.

    Right now they are in a 8' X 10' chain link dog pen with an igloo stuffed with straw, inside my 1/4 acre chicken yard. I am changing form just wire to fencing with the no-climb livestock panels 5' X 16' to help keep the coyotes, skunks, dogs and hopefully some of the cats around here out. I don't want to let the new birds in my established flock until I can be here to watch over them. And my chicken house is not big enough to block off a good size area for them alone. Is this alright for them for a few days?
