    I went out to feed the chickens this morning only to be greeted by a sweet little yellow face peeking out from under a Black Silkie.

    These four Salmon Faverolle babies hatched during the night and they were brigh eyed and ready to meet the world this morning. [​IMG]

    Uh-Oh! Don't show those to the science teacher in the other thread who thinks chicks are yellow because they obsorb their yolk. We'll never convince him that chiks come in all colors. [​IMG]

    They are way too cute though, makes me want chicks soooooo bad......

    Yes Carol, the are from Christie's Rose Isgrigg's group. I got her hooked on Faverolles around this time last year and I have been wanting some new blood for my little group.

    Sharie, You are right all but one have a tiny bit of black on the wing. I am wanting a rooster so I am hoping for at least one of each. A couple of little girls would be awesome.

    What a wonderful T'day treat!
