    Walked out my back door to find my male and female silkies admiring the pond! My rooster just stood there looking at the pond and watching the koi swim up to try to get pellets from him...was not sure if he was contemplating taking a swim with them![​IMG]

    Thanks! They have been getting closer and braver! I definitely don't want to have to save drowning chickens!

    That is so cute! My chickens pay no attention whatsoever to my little pond. Even the frogs don't interest them....

    Thank you for all the compliments! I love taking pictures of the silkies in the gardens. They really stand out surrounded by all the colors!
