I purchased 14 silkie eggs and only two hatched. I'm looking for a couple more playmates for my two cuties. They are now 3 weeks old. I also have a 4 week old that I believe is a RIR. My 4yr old daughter loves them! Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus with my daughter. The Silkies at 1 day old. I believe this is a RIR hen. I got her from a Land O Lakes farm. She's 4 weeks old. My pitbull Roxanne loves the chicks too. Roxanne is so patient as Lakes sits on her back.
