    They are now a month old. It's amazing how ugly they are at the moment. Their adult feathers are coming in, and still have SOME of there baby chick feathers in. So they look so odd looking. Talk about the ugly duckling phase. They turn into beautiful birds once they get past this phase. I can't wait to see how they turn out, but I have someone interested in buying them from me. I hope they will keep me updated on pictures of them.

    I know right?! I'll have to get some pictures of them. They are just the ugliest things on earth at the moment. But they are so cute though.

    Silkies are just the best! Be sure to take photos of them so you can look back and laugh! :)
