    I'm not sure if it is too early to tell, but I have to narrow down which birds I can keep. I can only keep hens/pullets so fingers are crossed [​IMG]

    This little silkie has been through a lot. It's other two litter mates did make it past the first two days. This one initially had great vigor but developed I'm assuming was wry neck into the first week of having it. After some research and lots of vitamins, this one seems to be cured and doing well.

    When I went to pick up my chick order at the hatchery They had three silkies left that I impulse bought. After getting them home I could see why they were the last three! The gal thought that they were white, but I'm assuming that this is a Buff silkie? Either way this one made it!

    Any guess on gender it is a little over 6 weeks old.... Thank you!!
