    So if i were to pick up eggs 30mins away... Do i have to let them sit a day before incubating them? I know ive read that you should let shipped eggs .....is it the same protocol?

    I didn't know she had it in her - I thought they were supposed to be sweet!

    I love silkies to though. Everyone said "Why are you getting that one? I thought we were getting chickens for eggs." Well jeez, I can have one pet-only chicken, can't I?!?! :D

    SilverSilkies, I learn something new with each and every one of your posts. You are a wealth of knowledge! Is there any way we could talk you into traveling over here to give us a workshop in color genetics? Tina

    I hope your Lavendars babies do well. Can you give them a drop of Rescue Remedy? It sounds like they've had a hard time...

    Lol, they're just fluffy like that. No grooming required :) They get cold easy though, poor dears.

    Yeah when I was younger I had some weird interbred chickens around and they were half silkies, half god knows what else. However, I dont know if this is a proven fact but I did notice that my silkies when I was a kid tended to hang out with the silky rooster and the other silky hens like a little click on the schoolyard. Anyone else notice that with their chickens? Some sort of chicken racism going on :)
