    My son and I are visiting my mom in California from Canada. She has a white silkie hen that we wanted to get a friend for so we adopted these chicks. They hatched June 5th. Their father is from California Poultry Ranch from Lincoln, CA and their mother is from Magnolia Silkies in Florida.

    SO CUTE!!! I've got 2 batches of silkie eggs in the bator, mixed colors, and I can't wait for little silkie fluffballs peeping around! I am praying hard that at least some of them will be okay, because my last clutch failed.
