    Okay so I seen my beautiful white silkies peeking at me while doing chores. So I took a break, and quickly snapped a few pictures. When I got inside and looked at them, I was so pleased with how they turned out. These are the first white silkies I hatched from my own birds. I love them! They are so lovely. I wish I could show. I feel they would do well. I got lucky with what I believe is two hens. They are 4-6 months old.

    Toes are perfect, great foot feathing, big crests, nice tight wings. [​IMG]

    I have a BUNCH more babies growing up. I only hope they turn out as nice. Now the question is what to do with all these silkies I hatched out. lol

    I love these first two head shots. They are the only real good photos. I just like the others because you can see what the birds look like.

    PS. Don't mind the dirty coop. I spilled some chicken feed, and mixed with the straw it made a bit of a mess. lol

    Oh I forgot to add. Please please don't take my pictures. [​IMG] I didn't put a watermark on them because I feel it distracts, but these are mine.

    I personally really love the head shots, nice contrast, detail, balence. Plus cuteness to the max!

    Thanks guys! [​IMG] I really love them. I have some B/B/S which are even better. But I haven't hatched any chicks yet because of fluffy fertility issues. I trimmed a bit, and now one is sitting on some eggs. So with luck will have some cuties soon. [​IMG]
