    Here are a few of the pics I took. I could not get any good ones. How do you take pics of chickens, they move constantly! If you have any guesses on colors for these guys, be my guest.

    Here are the 5 youngest silkies. The eggs came from Juliechickens. The eggs said all different colors on them including cuckoo, black, blue, splash, partridge, white etc. I don't know what any of these are. Just thought I would post. One is black of course, one is a tiny grey looking one and I think his egg said cuckoo. Then the one by the tiny one (upper right) was born silver, almost white, but is now grey. The two on either side of the black one are the same color, a light grey.

    Here is a 14 wk old sizzle from Jaynie in N. AL, not a great picture of him.

    Here is a 14 wk old black silkie pullet (I think) from Jaynie in N. AL

    And the next three are 11 weeks old and also came from Jaynie in N. AL.

    This one has feathers that are turning. (could it be partridge?) So far it looks like a pullet. It also has a messed up beak, I need to trim the top beak, it is way over the bottom part.

    A second pullet I think:

    And here is a video of me feeding them by hand, they literally climb me, fly up on my back if I am sitting. Very spoiled. You can see the two Salmon Faverolles in the video. Did not get any pics uploaded of them yet. I know what color they are!!!

    I really enjoy them. I just sit in there and watch them sometimes for an hour. Take care.

    Cute pics and video.They sure are cute. I want some of those fuzzy wuzzys.

    It is so hard for me to take good pics too. They have a good pose and then by the time you snap they have moved. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys. I love them all too. Those baby chicks will jump up on my lap when I sit out there to feed them. They figured out quickly that I hold the container in my lap while I toss some on the ground for them or feed them from my hand. So they jump up on my lap, or my back if I am not watching. That Black Sizzle was crowing pretty good this morning, so I guess I know the sex of one for sure!! Too cute.
