Being that these four Silkies are not sexed
, at day 1 we were already guessing who the rooster(s) would be , I hope there aren’t any , but the odds would mean there is probably at least one or two. We think two!
|Lilla already with attitude|
Lilla has been the biggest since the first day, she was the only one we could tell apart. She is always eyeballing everyone
, poor little Fluffy just avoids eye contact and scurries away when Lilla tries to show her who is boss. Look out when it comes to those meal worms , she’s a vulture. She makes the most noise when out of the brooder. We have our suspicion that Miss Lilla might actually be a roo.
|Surfer Girl Fluffy|
The most petite of the flock and absolutely beautiful
, super sweet disposition as well. She’s my daughters favorite so she gets the most cuddle and picture time.
The chickens have been handled so much
They are 1 month old today. We have a mixed batch of three chicks that are one week old, an Easter Egger, Buff Orpington and a Barred Rock that will be joining them in the big girl brooder shortly. I’m anxious about that
, the Silkies seem to get on so well , I can only imagine the drama of adding the new girls.
