    Those are called "horns" and silkies should not have them. I don't believe they are a DQ, but they are not desirable.

    I have been spending as much time as possible out in the coops lately. My chickens make my heart feel better. They give me such a peaceful feeling. As a result... I have LOTS of pictures :)

    Here is my blue orpington roo

    I am jealous, everyone keeps posting pics of spotless coops and grass with no poop, how do you do it, or maybe you only snap pics right after a good cleaning, cause I know it only takes 5 minutes after cleaning mine and I got more poop.

    on another note, hatched out 4 chicks yesterday to give to the nonstop silkie broodies, gave them both 2...one acceptted them right away the other was not so good about it, ended up culling 1 chick from the fiasco and giving the remaining chick to the good broody, so now I have 1 silkie with 3 chicks and 1 still broody.

    I did!! But now I am just not sure that polish are for me. Shame too, cause these are from really good lines.

    Still in that "figuring it all out" stage....

    I am feeding them Brown's layer feed,they get scraps like bread and fruit an veggies and they get outside run time everyday for like 3 hours and the whole time they are out they are digging in my flower beds and around the property eating bugs! Was. Thinking about getting some mealworms and giving them as a treat more frequently especially thru the winter months. I'd say they waste a lot of food but yes they do eat it!! A few of them are getting bright red combs and waddles but I'm still thinking since the weather has changed that it is just gonna be spring til they start to lay! I think I'm doing it all right just feeling a little defeated because my 3 yr old dd keeps saying asking when will there be eggs mommy??
