    My DH and I had fun this morning getting everyone rearranged. DH likes that part best. He worked hard. Here are the Blacks all down on the ground now and with the black Roo. Anyone need eggs?

    White Roo. He is about to finish a moult. The hens still look yukky.[​IMG]
    Young Buff Cockreral in with some buff hens from Lydia Webb. If I don't get anything I like out of this breeding the hens are going. I also have a buff Splash in there. She turns out great looking chicks. I am working on a buff splash color. She throws Buff white chicks.

    What a great fuzzy group you have there. I want blacks and some more buffs next. I think black silkies are just so amazing looking. The buffs look like puppy dogs.

    You seem to have many splash silkies....i wish you would go look at my pics i posted earlier tonight trying to get opinions on the sex of them. The tails look like roo's on the splash's. I wonder if you have any girls with such full tails....or are they all boys? I'd love to hear your view.

    Lurky, I will be glad to look. these girl usually have big tushes but they haven't come out of moult yet.

    Here is one of them not molting.

    I'm sorry the first splash here is a cockeral. The second one is a pullet. They are the same age and you can see a slight comb on male and streamers and bushier tail and diference in stance.
