A silkie fieldtrip

I finally got the silkie playpen finished. The babies got a whopping one afternoon outside before the temps dropped to the low 30s. Sigh. These babies will be inside until spring at this rate.

They were slightly freaked at first. The outdoors is scary!


They soon got over it and happily explored their new kingdom.


Some close ups-

They are absolutely gorgeous! I have a blue and a black silkie, but they are not as well feathered as your chicks :)

These babies are all from show quality stock. I've never had show quality silkies before and I have to say that the difference is remarkable. At 10 weeks they are already larger and fluffier than my 1.5 year old hatchery silkies. There is a HUGE difference!
They are as sweet as they are pretty! :)
