    There was a very glorious 30 minutes between to hot sun and to many gnats.

    All 6 of my birds were briefly in the same area of lawn.

    I should have done this originally but after scrolling through I noticed a few people have introduced their Silkies here too, so here's my fluff balls!

    Zoltan:
    Such a gentleman towards his females but a little slow at times...let's just say he's still maturing. Currently has wonkey wattles but I've been told that they can even out as he gets older. I hope anyways.

    PomPom:
    Shouldn't have favourites but she's well up there. My current favourite for showing too, such a lovely chicken. Very pretty face compared to my others.

    Audrey:
    Lovely chicken and I love her cuckoo colouring, sad that show standards don't. Maybe one day! She's the biggest of all the pullets and my only bearded.

    Fizz:
    Newest member to my Silkie flock. Fell in love with her crest colour and leg feathering, so soft! Coming in a close second to PomPom. They're best friends already.

    So my tiny flock

    This is Heart. My dominant hen. She is a 2 year old Salmon Faverolle.

    58419311_10113493093479440_202133405901520896_n.jpg

    This is Miss Princess Bluebelle. She is the oldest at about 5. She is the mother to my two baby babies (which are barnyard bantam mixes with a touch of silkie in them I'm told). The baby right in front of her is Peepers who is the older baby baby by 1 day.

    62312669_10113723242239480_6485456769362427904_n.jpg

    This is Tabitha (or maybe Tommy?) Who is the youngest chicken in the flock, but by far the boldest. 64228823_10113723244524900_933168656798449664_n (1).jpg

    And this is Poof (black head) and Floof (Orange/brown head). They are almost 4 months old and we are still waiting to see Floof's male characteristics show because so far they aren't :p We are pretty sure Poof is a tiny girly girl. But my luck all my young ones will be roosters.
