    I probably should have said I did NOT produce them, only lucky to own them. I do think that they and another addition or two will give me a great start.
    Glad you think so too!

    Hey all!

    My baby silkies have grown a lot. They're a little over 2 months old now.

    I have a three month old silkie that's looking like a girl (I'll post a picture tomorrow). My question is, how much more will she feather out? The poof on her head (crown?) is a decent sized fro but it doesn't cover her eyes. Could it possibly continue to grow till it covers the side of her face like the hen in the picture above. Beautiful chicken by the way. [​IMG]
