    I just wanted to show off my new silkie babies! Hatched yesterday.

    We got one white! I think this one is the most photogenic, and very bold, I think it may be a HE!

    These two are supposed to be cockoos, don't know much about that, but I'm guessing it's a pattern rather than a color? Either way one looks black and the other blue! The blue one seems abit camera shy, he kept ducking from the flash.

    Then two splashes, the one on the left is miss noisy, she's chirping away as we speak! She fell in the water and got soaked just after I put her in the brooder, I've never hatched such little babies, so I put some marbles in the water and we're good now.

    And lastly, two blues, I don't know if you can see it in the pic, but the one on the left has white tipped toes! Probably a fault, but I think it's kind of neat.

    And a group shot!

    I was planning to keep one (my mom is getting the rest), but I'm thinking I might keep two, one blue and one splash (the ones on the left). I really hope their girls, but if not I'd settle for 1 boy and 1 girl. I just hope they aren't two boys.

    Wittle fuzzy feets.....

    Precious little angels. I should be getting my first birds today. Two or three, I haven't decided yet. Defintiely not one, because I don't want her to be lonely.

    I'm thinking 1 white leghorn, 1 rhode island red, and 1 barred rock.
