    This is Princess (my 4 yr old daughter named these guys seems to fit her though)

    The blue one is 3 weeks younger then the 2 white ones. Bluey Blue is what we call her

    The third is Snowball.
    They are from a breeder that shows silkies and has been great in helping us prepare for their arrival. We are keeping them seperate from everyone right now but hope to integrate them next month when they are bigger
    two white ones are nearly 9wks and the blue one is almost 6wks old.

    My laying hens are fun but there is something about these three that have really gotten to me. They are really great!

    Oh my gosh, they are such Diva's!!! I have 15 babies coming the end of the month. They are all silkies and I can't wait. They are going to be my specialty. I want to breed them if I can keep a male. I have heard that the male silkies are not too loud. Will see!!! [​IMG]
