Today we picked up our baby Silkie chickens. This is a photo looking into the chick nursery at our local feed and seed. Everything was so normal there. Nobody was wearing a mask or gloves. Instead, folks were focused on loading giant bags of seed into trucks and picking out pullets and roosters from the nursery! It was a nice break from the intensity.
We’ve been waiting for spring to add to our flock! And we’ve been waiting for months to add silkies. You can only get Silkies here in the spring and summer months.
Silkies are a smaller breed of chicken with feathered feet and a tufted crown. They are known for their sweet disposition and make wonderful pets.
This white one stole our heart with her big black eyes!
Look at this cute black one too!
And a gold one.
These beauties are so much fun right now. 😊 🐓
