    We went to get more chicken food and found out they just got a shipment of 2 day old silkies. Other half says you wanna get one? I'm thinking YES! But at the same time it's like no, that's twice the work, we'll need a bigger house for them blah blah. We only have Pheobie our indoor buff silkie pet. After looking into the brooder and seeing how cute they were I gave in and said ok. So here's our un named white 2 day old silkie. He has red on his head, they said that's how they separated the whites from the crowd.

    I get them at our local feed store they sell them individually.

    The lil white silkie will make 3 weeks in a cpl of days. Gees, is this one growing so fast. I don't recall Pheobie growing this fast.

    I just love the feathers on the feet on this one. Pheobie didn't have that much like this on.
