Hi. I just got my first pair of silkie chicks on the 12. They where a early Bday present from my best friend. One was buff and the other black. they where two weeks old. Sadly the buff one died on my Bday. the black ones name is Blackberry. At first he was a little lonely but he's getting used to being alone. I make sure to spend lots of time with the little chick, and he is growing very atached to me. I'm not sure if it is a boy or a girl.
