    These Silkie buffs hatched 2 days ago. See the one with a "Z" on his head? I did not mark this chick. It's a natural marking. I guess a "Z" name is order. [​IMG]

    Whew! For a minute there I thought is was going to look like Jesus or the Virgin Mary.

    Yeah it's the mark of Zorro for sure. [​IMG]

    How cute they are at that age but the "Z" will disappear when the baby feathers are replaced by old bird feathers but "ZORRO" it must be like others have said. How darling.
