    Yeah that was what I was thinking, but I know I need to wait a couple more weeks. I am allowing myself 2 roos and I really do not want two white ones, and I would be torn to tear these two apart. I noticed today that Popcorn's head hair is starting to show looked little streaming, but need to wait till it all grows out. Oh the waiting.....[​IMG]

    Just in case anyone is interested, I have 24 Partridge Silkie eggs on the Crazy 24 hour auction in the Chickenstock area. Hope it's ok to post, if not please delete. Thanks!

    I want a porcelain. I'll check out the auction forum. Thanks!

    Now that is genius! [​IMG] I love it. If I still lived with my old roommate, I'd totally copy your idea. We had a huge deck, I could have put two, even three, good sized pens under there. Why didn't I ever think of that before..? [​IMG]Oh well. I love living in my own house better so I think I'll survive. lol

    Barngoddess - so sorry about your cross beak and having to cull. I'm certain many of us will have to face that one day and I am dreading it.

    KMH - I am on pins and needles for you!!! Fingers crossed for the best results from your hatch! [​IMG]
    What a fantastic idea! I'm planning on having another coop and run built just for my silkies, but if I could have even another grow out pen that would be even better. Brilliant use of space! Looks good too! [​IMG]

    Porcelains & Lavenders??

    Are there any in the Connecticut area? Or somewhere near Connecticut? I have found breeders everywhere but near home. It would be nice if I could go pick some up rather than having them go through the shipping process. I saw Catdance had a beaufitul beautiful pair of Porcelains, but they're way on the other side of the continent.

    Are there different types of Silkies or are they go by color? Some seem to be fatter, bigger, fluffier different breeds or sex or just what they turned out to look like?

    I have an unusual Silky. I purchased 2 at the same time, just hatched. Same mom and dad. Both grey/silver just like one at the bowl of food in other pic. But as they grew, I found they
    are very different! One is a normal Silkie, other didn't get so fuzzy. Fuzzy top hat, tail and feet. Extra toe on feet. But smooth feathers! It looks like it mixed with my Lavender Orph!
    It looks like a Polish Lavender Silkie, lol![​IMG][​IMG]

    I don't think that's a Silkie? It seems to have black feet, maybe a mix? Silkies do not have normal feathers like this little one does.

    Here is a pic of my roo, Prune, critique anyone? btw, I have no plans for any show at any time nor any specialized breeding program, just have him because I love the way they look.


    And this is Lovey, black hen

    What is muesli??
    Indeed Muesli are multi-grain cereal + dried fruits. But it's the yoghurt that give them the advantage ;-)
