    I only had a few eggs left as i had sold them to people on the board not knowing the mistake would be made and i would lose my Show trio. These are the ones that hatched. Conehead being the oldest at almost three months. He looks like a pullet but he crows. A few splash in with the blacks and few blues in the other side

    Julie, They are so beautiful. I love that age the Silkies do seem to go through such a geek stage as as some other breeds. I cant' believe there is a roo in there. Such nice heads.

    I'm scared to count. I don't think I want to know right now. I am going to sell some of course. I am trying to find a pullet out of the ones I hatched from Jody and my whites. I think I see two white pullets. Just watching their type to see which ones I am keeping for breeding.
