    We had two babies hatch out! Tori is a nice dark silkie, looks almost black with a silver breast and underside and silver tipped wings!

    Loulou is all silver! She is already my favorite! And she is gorgeous!!

    Yes, I am sure it is a silkie! It'a blue silkie chick. The eggs came from Mrs. AK-Bird-Brain (aka TORI which is where my chick got her name!)

    Here' a pic of Loulou!

    Loulou took 24 hours to hatch, is quite a bit weaker than Tori, so while Tori is still with Mama Loulou is in the house getting special care.

    PC, it's too late for me. I have been sucked in!! I have 15 more sillkie eggs in the 'bator!

    Oh no, Tori's chicks are super evil. Doomed.

    Notice how the silkie is looking at that bear? In Alaska
    they use silkies to protect flocks from bear attacks.

    Loulou is now trying to stand, and screaming her cheeping orders to me. She is telling me how she wants her brooder set up. It has to be just so, you know!
