Our youngest daughter recently joined 4H, she's so excited! We have recently acquired four Silkies, all different colors. One has a sort of defect on its foot (this was a first chick from a new pair the breeder had tried out) & this one was a freebie-it's also the smallest, like a runt. Seems ok otherwise so far No clue if girls or boys. Playing it by ear lol. Literally. Building the coop soon, they are only 3 weeks right now. Can't wait!
