I think the Silkies are my favorite breed and out of my 44 chicks, I have none!! I ordered some from my local farm store, but they sold them to someone else. I think I will relax a little with the ones I have. Yours look beautiful. What is up with the foot feathers? Maybe you should hatch some of her eggs?
I was looking at photos of White Silkies and they do indeed have feathered feet. Check out the photos at this site.http://www.cacklehatchery.com/silkie.htm
Ahhh cheers Don!I wish I'd taken my camera with me - i'm over the moon with the photo of the Silkie hen - she is a natural to photography.......what a striking pose!
Stiggy- your silkies are gorgeous! How old are they? Mine are 4 weeks old now, and they have so many feathers on their feet you can't even see their toes. (Makes things very messy. Ugh.)Thanks for stopping by my place... it's nice to meet new people. I'm really enjoying my visit here!
Thanks for the compliments Paula!I don't know how old any of the chickens are actually - we inherited them when we bought the place...I spose I should have asked really, but we were so amazed at actually OWNING some chickens, I think all the proper questions went out our head in excitement!:D
