    I just took some new pictures of my Silkie babies yesterday so I thought I would share! These came from eggs from Catdance Silkies. I'm absolutely thrilled with them, they're drop dead gorgeous [​IMG]

    Here they are when they were little babies:

    Here they are now... They have GINORMOUS top knots (that they love to dunk in their waterer [​IMG]) and are the sweetest little things. Perfect babies to start my breeding flock with!

    I set 12 plus a few extras that she sent. Unfortunately I had a major incubator issue and lost the rest. I was completely heartbroken because they were beautifully packaged and arrived in wonderful shape. Every last one was fertile and developing up until disaster struck. I feel super fortunate to have gotten these beauties though and will definitely hope to order some more from her later this winter when I am able to replace my broken bator!​
