    Hi I am from southeast Missouri my husband and I are chciken lovers.Started with laying hens and -you know how that goes.I fell in love with each breed. this year however I bought some bantams- straight run from Orscheln's. I know 3 are silkies, but they are 5 weeks and their fuzz is crazy wild and crazy-lol, my first ones and I love them.Kiwi- I guess you'd call it blue color is my favorite thats why my name here is kiwi's mom.
    My questions are I have one little bird we have noo idea what it is, it started cream with a brown chipmunk stripe them overnight she is gray and black.I have photo and another question:

    The other question: see the red cochin behind the odd bird, its feathers are weird also, what is it? A regular cochin? also I will post a pic of silkies. They just moved into their built on room, hubby had to do it suddenlyand its far from finished.Im making curtains for their homes--lol.
    Any idea what the gray colored one is or whats wrong with cochins feathers?

    Next here are my silkies

    Cant wait to get to know all if you!
    Oh just seen it wont let me show phots because Im new [​IMG]

    Maybe you can post your pictures of the "breeds" section and you'll get more responses. I'm a newbie, too, so I'm clueless. Your babies are pretty darn cute [​IMG]
