    [​IMG] No, not cussing anybody! The last pic I uploaded only took 26 minutes! That and my very poor photography skills, doesn't make for great pics. I'm still trying to figure out this new camera too. I'm sure the camera can capture it, it's just me!

    Oh, I'm sure it is, especially around this nut house! [​IMG] I'd have Pip trying to kill me, the dog trying to kill Pip, the Silkie flailing while soaking wet and jumping out of my arms to run amuck in the house, the dog trying to catch the Silkie...I think I'll wait till I am very bored some day.

    I had a couple of white silkies, just pet quality that had this same issue. I was feeding cracked corn as a treat and figured that must be the problem but then I realized my chicken feed was also corn based. Since I wasn't planning to show them I didn't change anything and when they molted the new feathers were white. I think that was at 9 or 10 months.

    Hi scamperwillow. [​IMG] I just adopted my first two bantam Silkie chicks. I am considering breeding them when they mature. I absolutely love their personalities. I live in Monterey County.
