    I don't have a picture of Shakti where she isn't blurred, but I have a little video of her taking a dust bath! Bantam Silkie/Buff Brahma cross. We bought her from a farmer. She is the SASSIEST thing I have ever seen.

    These three chicks are all from a White Silkie hen and Splash Bantam Wyandotte rooster:


    [​IMG] This chick will be 9 weeks old on July 11th.

    [​IMG] This one will be nine weeks old on July 13th. (and is convincing me it is male)



    [​IMG] The third is eight weeks old today (July 9th).

    My silkie/easter egger mix is 26 weeks and not an egg from her yet. I noticed over the last few days she's been making little nests in the coop and run where she sits most of the day. She still gets up from time to time, but while the others are running around, she's in her mini nest. Is there a chance this is a sign she's getting ready to lay (she recently stopped checking out the nest boxes) or is she trying to go broody without eggs? It's just very strange.

    Give her some time. She may just be trying to "figure things out".

    Miss Greycie Blue has finally laid her first egg (and on my birthday no less). It's the most perfect little green egg. I'll upload a picture when I get on my computer.

    Here are the pictures! The first is it on its own. The second is in the middle of the other two eggs I collected this morning.
