    Hi all - thought I'd post some more picks of my chicks - we've had some fantastic weather over the last few days so we quickly knocked up a run so that they could have some fun in the sun for a few hours - and boy did they scream when we brought em back in:

    What's this funny stuff we're stood on

    I love the pictures! My two Silkies are only four days old - I can't believe how much they are about to change in the next couple of weeks.

    Yes it's amazing how much they have grown - they seem to change a little every day - but I really don't mind, I thought I'd want them to stay babies forever but now I can't wait for them to get all big and gonky!!

    They look like they are having a great time! My one chick used to sit on my shoulder too but now she thinks she's too big for that:(
