Look at this silkie baby..... I bought the egg on e-bay and they were supposed to be silkie eggs. Well it looks like a silkie but it's barred in color? Can silkies even come barred? I didn't think they could. Could she be a cross between a barred cochin and a silkie? That would be my best guess. Look at her little fluff ball tail in the third picture. She is super friendly and adorable but I wanted to raise pure silkes and I am not certain she is 100% silkie. What do you think? Here is another of my babies. I would call her blue. This little girl is just beautiful. I have no question about her color - obviously she is black. I just wanted to show her off. Her crest is so full she can barely see and she is only 12 weeks old. I just think she is beautiful and I am going to let my kids show her in the local fair this year. Oh and see the guineas in the pics? I bought those yesterday from a local lady. SOOO glad I found her! She raises all kinds of fowl - chickens, turkeys, and guineas. I am excited about starting guineas on my mini farm. I bought 8 - 5 pearl, 2 pied, and one brown. They are 4 1/2 weeks old and I also bought 2 newborn bourbon red turkey polts!
