Another Surprise

Look who was born this morning. The first White Silky baby! So small compared to the other three.
The first three chickies born are now venturing outside the hen house into the enclosed outside pen.

Little Inger has been teaching her kids all the tricks of the trade. They are growing so fast.

I was told that chicks raised by the mother grow faster.
Stay tuned. Maybe tomorrow there will be another surprise!
Until next time................


  1. They are adorable Cindy!! Thank you for sharing the pictures! Myself, I have raised chicks both from the store as well as hatched from under the hen - they grow super fast both ways!! It's not long before you start to see wing feathers... like in your second picture. :-) xoxo

  2. Fresh chicks are always fun for me to watch, getting dry and turning fluffy, then figuring out the walking bit, they always look to me like they are on little wheels! Nice pics!


  3. Oh, and a PS. I adore the kitty banner thing.


  4. What a fun post! Love it that little Inger is being such a good mom. Watching the mother hen teach the chicks is always so awesome. I love the picture of the little black chick walking away from the camera. What a sweet shot. I hope you get more silkie babies too!


Thank you for visiting. Hope to see you again soon.
