    Here are the 4 Silkie chicks that hatched yesterday. 1 hatched by itself, and the other 3 only pipped the shell, so I helped them out. They are perfect! [​IMG]

    (Excuse the thermometer. lol. A thermometer is a baby chicks best friend!)

    They are cute!!
    I love silkies but think they require a separate barn from other chickens......
    Do you keep them separate?

    I have them seperate coop, so that the eggs will not be mixed.

    Quote:not sure. They are from my silkies. All of the colors are in one pen. But I do have a black roo and a splash hen. So they could be blues.
