    I know, I know, there are at least 20 silkie threads a day, but hey, what can I say. [​IMG]

    These babies are about 4 1/2 months old. None of them have obvious wattles or combs, but I think "Ginny" needs to be renamed for sure. "Hagrid" has always been slow to develop, and is even now smaller than the rest.

    LOL! Thanks! And according to my kids I messed up the names, Hagrid is Myrtle, and vice versa. [​IMG]

    With silkies, I never fully cement my opinion until I see an egg or a crow. And even then, I wonder! [​IMG]
