The Chicks Dig It - Part 4

I lied, there's a part 4 to our Chicken Quest story and honestly who knows how many more there will be. We got home tonight to find out that 7 two day old Silkie chicks had found their way to our farm today, thanks to our chicken dealer friend, Russell.

They are too young to know if they are hens or roosters yet, so we will see. Jason says we are keeping the hens and selling the roosters. It will be fun to watch them grow up and get fluffy!

Silkies come in different colors, but Russell said that the Silkie chicks we got came from a guy who has primarily white ones like this one.

Silkies lay small eggs and are mostly good as pets.
I will post more pictures as these guys grow up.
