    Hiya all,

    Im new here, ive got 3 girls already,but tomorrow I'm picking up 2 new girlies from a wildlife rescue centre. This little girls were found in someones pantry in a crisp box! They were terrified of daylight and pretty much everything, even the wind.

    However they are comming out of themselves alot now, and tomorrow I pick them up! (For the last month I have been visiting them and helping[​IMG] them not to be frightend anymore)

    However Iv'e been told that they are silkies, but I'm not to sure.

    Any ideas peeps?

    Cheers

    Kain

    Thanks all :)

    Shes actually got a little friend whos comming home too, but shes gone abit broody, but from what I have just researched on google, thats quite normal for them. Arya, one of my other girls goes abit broody for time to time, but I think she gets bored after a day lol.

    I keep bantam cochins specifically to go broody and raise chicks for me! However, they have to have a better nest than this girl picked....
