    Trooper (the black one) was outside with his buddy Martha Stewart (the white one) and he started to crow!

    He was flapping his "wings" and strutting about, doing his best to cock-a-doodle-doo, though I must admit, was weak, at best [​IMG]

    These offspring are from Purple Chicken's Silkies. They are certainly EVIL SILKIES, based on that fact alone.

    Anyone want to guess if Martha is a girl or boy?

    Are streamers the feathers on the saddle?

    I'm thinking maybe Jon Stewart? He is a bit of a political commentary windbag Silkie.
