    They are GORGEOUS! I sure wish you sold hatching eggs. [​IMG]

    I love the group shot of the little puff balls. They are so sweet! [​IMG]

    Oooooooo... keep me posted on that. I have my fingers crossed on getting some buff babies from Jack Ferguson in a couple of weeks. He's trying to decide if and what he will sell.
    I have one pitiful little funky buff that came from Tractor Supply and I think she's beautiful even with her non-confirmation form and the black leakage. Since my mother has been begging for red-headed grandchildren, I am trying my darndest to accomodate her. [​IMG]

    This is pitiful Little Jackie (named by my red-headed student who immediately claimed the chicken as kin) [​IMG] She's 3-4 months old in this picture so she has some filling out to do.

    Yes, Jack looks like he still has some growing to do.

    Oh my goodness! I don't mean to hijack, but pic #6 reminded me so much of a favorite Star Trek episode, I just had to go get a pic to compare:

    Tribble? Silkie? Same thing? Only the space aliens that left them on this planet know for sure! [​IMG]

    They are cute little boogers, once you figure out which end is which. [​IMG]

    Quote:Jackie is actually a girl. Well, she's laying eggs anyway. [​IMG] But she is still young and goofy looking. I don't figure she will ever be a contender since she is hatchery stock, but she has a great personality and is very sweet. I do love that sweet silkie nature. [​IMG]

    Gritsar- You are right! They do look like tribbles! Silkies really ARE trying to take over the world!! [​IMG]
