    The are all doing FANTASTIC!
    We ordered 10 total...8 silkies- 2 red-2 buff-2 white-2 black and 2 sultans! We got 3 extra packing peanuts and I am hoping one is a barred rock rooster [​IMG] Always wanted one of those! LOL, I think they are neat looking dudes.


    Group shot....they will only be in this temp brooder for about a week then they will be going to the garage [​IMG] We'll be out of town and it will be easiest for MIL to take care of them outside with the other chickens.

    They are all warmed up and napping now. They have bright green poo, is that normal? It's been like 3 months since I've had chicks and I'm like a new mom again!!!!! [​IMG]

    So cute! Yes, the green poo is normal when they're babies.

    Congratulations!!!! They look healthy & happy.
     
  6. Are you sure that's a Sumatra? They don't have feathered feet and Black Sumatras are black and yellow as chicks.

    This is a Sumatra.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please. [​IMG] I don't want to burst your bubble, though. Those are some darn cute chickies. [​IMG]

    Quote:No, you're fine! [​IMG] And you are correct, LOL! I am an idiot and had "sumatra" in my head when I meant "SULTAN" [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]....

    Sweetness. [​IMG]
