    She was brought inside to let her frozen crest thaw and has ended up staying. This is "Blue". She is such a sweet girl! I had to keep pushing her back to get these pics because she kept trying to get onto my lap. Who knew a house chicken would be so fun?! Please excuse the Christmas junk in the background.

    Laura, those silkies just look bizzare to me. I suppose with time I'll warm up to that variety.

    Yep, to know them is to love them! I keep trying to leave mine in a coop but then I bring them back inside:p I really miss the biggest lil cockerel I named "Falcon" as when he started making noises, it sounded like a falcon or hawk. Now in the mornings, he and I practice crowing together. He tries first and it sounds so pitiful like a dying drowning strangled something or other a million years old. Then he looks at me and its my turn;) Then he tries harder... [​IMG]

    The lil girl is sweeter than melting butter or sweeter than powdered sugar...her guy hasn't started making noises yet and I think the one with Falcon is also a boy but I keep changing my mind...it'd be wonderful if it was also a pullet but I'm still leaning towards a cockerel.

    Thank you Tori, for So Much FUN!
