    They are close to me and the opportunity is good. I am allready keeping 3, 5 week olds in a section of the run from the 20 week olds untill they are big enough, whats 2 more.

    Ok this will be easy. I do it all the time. Just add them, go about your life as if nothing has happened. When he sees them and says "Hey where did they come from?" Just say " O those I had those for a long time."

    Well I got 4. 2 white Bantam Silkies and 2 blue Bantam Silkies.
    They are so tiny and adorible. I took the high road and just asked, I had to promise that I wont get anymore. Atleast for now. hehe
    I will post Pictures tomorrow. They hatched today so they are sleeping.

    I love blue silkies! Unfortunately, my two, Fred and George, are a bit standoff-ish and don't like to be cuddled very much. Glad you asked and was given permission! Have fun with them!
