Awwwwwww! Good cluck with the babies.
Aw - I'd love to have some chickens but the covenants on our house don't allow it When I win the lottery ...
Thank you I'm expecting a cuteness overload when the silkies are due to hatch in a day or two http://www.flickr.com/photos/43067379@N00/939247603/Suey, don't forget to buy your ticket!
What a lovely ickle chickieI love silkies they are such cute little bantums.Have you tried Frizzles they are amusing little ones cuter than Silkies.Al our chicks used to be mothered by our Old English Sheepdog It was so funny watching him lieing their with all these chicks around him unfortunately he used to make them a bit soggy with his kisses Mind you the ducklings and goslings seemed to enjoy his kisses
Unfortunately there are no Frizzle breeders close enough to me to avoid stressing them during a move, otherwise I'd be overrun with them! Wish I could have goslings or ducklings, but a) my neighbourhood comittee wouldn't approve, and b) I had a duck, it ate my Koi. 'Nuff said.
But you can get a breed of ducks called muscovy's that never quack so shouldnt get complaints from neighbours for them lol
ooh when it grows up it will be amazing with some roast taters and parsnips sweed stuffing and gravy mmm tasty.
Two of the chicks have turned out to be boys, so they will be in the pot for the Christmas/Hanukah holidays. Probably honey glazed with allspice and clementine and some lovely homegrown roast parsnip and spuds
V. cute.I should like chickens (just for a few eggs and entertainment, can't be doing with any more breeding here), and garden is a total organic slug breeding zone so would provide some tasty snacks, but Mr C forbids me to take out the second mortgage required to convert and electrify the wendy house against urban foxes.Where are silkie pics?
