    I love your silkies LilPeeps! I'm hoping to show mine someday, but my birds don't measure to the APA standards. I'm buying some breeder quality ones in October though.

    Cute pics Chirpy! Do you know the sex of them yet? The partridge looks like a beautiful rooster to me. I think the blue might be a pullet.

    I'm pretty sure you are correct. The Partridge is a cockeral and the blue is a pullet. They are just now 2 months old so it's not 100% but probably 95%.

    You should see my little flock ranging in my front yard. They are like
    lawn ornaments.


    Hey wait... I think I know who you are. I'd recognize that rabbit anywhere. [​IMG]
    FluffnStuff is spreading the silkie disease and forced these eggs on me.
    It's not my fault!!!
