A Birthday Present for Silas

One of my farmer friends from Floresville gave little Silas a birthday present. Silkie chicks!

And one of them was still in the egg, ready to hatch at any moment.

In addition to our 26 hens, we have added 9 little Silkie chicks to the flock. They are adorable when fully grown...all furry and small and cute. Plus, they have miniature but yummy eggs.

AWWWW....SILKIES!!!! How COOL! :D They will be so fun. I've never had them, but they are so cute! I've hatched & raised a few guineas this summer. They're not as cute as chicks, though. ;)
