    They are beautiful! [​IMG]

    Right now my two 3 week old silkies are the ugliest things! Seriously bad hair days, every day.

    Can't wait till they grow up and get beautified. [​IMG]

    I. Want. Eggs. Your birds are gorgy! I'm jealous, my two silkie boys look like poo compared to them.

    Especially since I have two boys, and no silkie hens. [​IMG]

    Oh oh oh ! I must have a buff silkie!

    I currently have some silkie/ee eggs from emvickrey in the incubator and I can hardly wait till they start hatching, about a week from now. I'm planning their little mobile homes so I can move them around in the yard (very large yard) and a thread by Head Roo is inspiring some personalized house designs... head is bursting with hopes and plans![​IMG]

    WOW! They are absolutely beautiful! You have done such a good job with your breeding program. [​IMG]

    Mine finally started laying about a month ago. They are just now big enough to set. I put a half dozen in the bator earlier this week. We'll see how it goes. I've had 100% fertility on the eggs I have cracked (my dogs have had a lot of egg lately!). We'll see how they hatch out. If all goes well on this end this summer, I figured to send you some eggsonce the weather cools off in early fall (if you still want them).

    Thanks for posting the pictures! Your babies are beautiful! [​IMG]

    Did I read that you are also working on chocolate silkies? Do you have pictures of your chocolate line? I would love to see what those look like.

    Wow, if you had yours this good way back when I was still breeding Buffs I would have gotten some from you and not dropped that color! [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you. Nope, no chocolates. I remember reading about somebody on the silkie club forum that was working on a chocolate line. [​IMG]
