I think I'm in Love.....

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful in all your life??? *sigh*




Meet my new Silkie babies..... (My good friend Carole from Fowl Visions already knows about this... sorry Carole, this will be old news to you....)

This is Clementine......



This is Gertrude (Gertie)......




And this is Sadie.





And here are my original three-



Belle....
Beau....
and Cecil.....



I'm having a serious case of Chickie Love. Please bear with me.






I even love them from behind.....



*Sigh*.....

  1. Oh Paula I'm laughing - they are lovely I'm positive that is a lovely chicken. ROFL - the hind view looks like what my hair does without conditioner! OK I'm sorry - they are nice silkie chickens - any woman who keeps goats has no room to giggle about chickens! You are the sweetest - you love your animals as much as we do ours!

  2. I love Silkies! If I have a matched pair of WHite Japanese Bantams, I'll trade you some chicks!

    Did you know that Silkies have black bones?

  4. Now those are the cutest chickens I've seen in a long time, and the 'behind shot' was a good way to start my day with a chuckle!!!

  5. Clementine is my favorite! Right up there with Belle and the Little terrorist! I used to breed silky doves and they were so gentle and sweet right out of the nest. Do silky chickens have different personalities from the smooth feathered chickens?

  6. Oh no...now I want Silkies, but I think my rather run-of-the-mill chicks will feel like wall flowers with those hair-dos!!! How cute!

  9. I don't know about these poofy chickens. I haven't decided yet how I feel about them but I will say that they are very unique. And isn't it great that you can enjoy them so much? I have a Gertie too and she's a sassy, independent little Orpington who lays pretty little eggs. :)

  15. Awwwwwww!!!! They are so cute and beautiful. I love their hairdos. And your house looks great, too. Are they pretty good layers? Mine took a break but are starting up again. I think mine are pretty but I might have to see if the "chicken man" has any silkies. HA. Hope you have a great week, Paula.

  20. Very fuzzy and delicate! I am like Amy @ Twelve Acres in the fact that I'm not sure what I think about this breed. I'm not sure I would want such a delicate looking chicken but I definitely enjoy looking at them on your blog and at the fair.

  26. Afro chickens!!!! :D
    .. or at least that's what we call them when we see them in the petting zoo..

    since their 'haircut' looks most like my daughter's afro.. *lol* (she always mentions that too)

    greetings from holland!

  32. Just hopped over from The Back Acher, and it was love at first site (hehe, er, sight)

    I am a Silkie keeper as well. I have a Blue Splash hen and two Black hens. But I am in love with the red one you have. My kids were all drooling over her too :D

    Happy farming,
