    I don't know, but I'm thinking over 80 degrees might be too hot. Maybe someone who ships all the time will chime in. [​IMG]

    She still had the one white baby this morning. I decided to pull it from her and add it to the nursery and put Cinnabun back with her Roo. She wasnt happy and I dont blame her.Plus seems one chick was missing from the group and I found momma had dug a hole and it must have crawled out . no sign of it anywhere and I dought it made it because it was only a week old. .

    Just wanted to share my silkie babies with everyone, since bragging to my friends I get the strangest looks like I'm the crazy chciken lady. [​IMG] Anyways, I got my first silkie about 3 or 4 weeks ago and this past weekend got 2 more, a black and a buff. I know my white silkie is a non-bearded one, but can anyone tell me from my pics what the news one might be...they are only a few days old. Anyways, here are my silkie babies with a couple polish friends. [​IMG]

    Okay, my seller told me that my chick is a 'Blue Partridge' that she's been working on. She said she threw in two eggs for fun in my order. I had no idea, it was a total surprise! LOL But at least now I know what I have! Not a Silver. [​IMG] I hope it's a girl!! [​IMG]


    Yes, THIS looks silver!! Mine is definitely not silver! That chick is gorgeous!



    GoldBarRanch, sorry about all the chick losses! Wow, you have some heat going on there already!! That in insane! We're at 87 right now and I thought that was warm enough for me!

    CamiLynn, welcome to the madness. You are not alone! [​IMG]BTW, those chicks are super cute! I can't tell what your black is-- not enough light to see. I'm not seeing your Buff??? Are you talking about the little red chick, maybe?
