The momma hen started laying, so she is with her new beau. The 12 chicks are on the own! They range from dark--almost blue, traditional splash and a few are very light blue. Very colorful group....Silkies are take a long time to tell whose a roo/pullet....So by Spring I will be able to sort, pick and choose.....they love table scraps! One stood on Nessie's hand the other day "Hey grampa look!" She is 6 and has been coming to the barn since she was a baby I like to start the love of critters early! Jerry

November 2011 I retired, sold my Shetland flock and moved to town.I live on the edge of Fergus Falls, pop 13,000. Its has been a great choice. My mother, sister, her family and my granddaughter live here. I have a garden shed that I converted into a chicken coop. Its also houses my granddaughter's pet Rabbit. My backyard will be flowers and shrubs.
