    Ok so they are hilarious. The routine seems to be is to stop by the feeder, then head over to the water, make a few laps around the feeder, then back to the heat where they fall asleep standing up, rocking back and forth until suddenly timbeeeeerrr! Sound asleep:D Here are some pics

    I think I have these right!

    Oh how cute, we got ours just after they hatched and they were hilarious, and now we're hooked and ordered 3 more a Blue Silkie, Buff Silkie, and another Sultan. Can't wait til we get them. Have fun with them. Keep us up on their progress... [​IMG]

    We ordered ours from Meyer's also, we ordered 25 EE's they shipped 26, 2 died during shipping, one just after arrival but all the rest are fat and sassy and a little over 2 wks old.
