    I went to pick up some Ameracauna pullets yesterday and what did I fall in love with........................................


    A SILKIE.......................... OH NO.....................I'M AN OWNER OF A SILKIE................................... Meet Tinkerbell, I hope it's a girl. She is the sweetest little thing.

    I'm a closet Silkie lover, I never knew it. I LOVE my big birds. I mean I always thought I was that big chicken kind of person, I still am, I love them all. Good grief, this is out of hand. [​IMG]

    They really are the sweetest. Tinkerbell is adorable! I have a little brown/partridge(?) week-old silkie that absolutely loves to be cuddled and the rest of my chicks are still scared of me!

    hehe. Oh man, I knew there was a reason I stay away from places with chicks/chickens. The last time I went, I came home with 20 chicks. [​IMG]

    She sure is a beauty though! [​IMG]

    I know. Tinkerbell is so sweet, she seriously wants to be picked up. I made her a nest in a basket with a diaper cloth. I would pet her little head every so often and she just sings away. My husband doesn't want any house dogs, but he never said no lap chickens!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    She is about 8 wks.

    Yep, they steal you heart and then you are sunk. Congrats, she is a cutie. Enjoy a new kind of chicken experience. Doesn't mean you can't still enjoy your large fowl, it is just an added dimension
