I’ve wanted a silkie chicken since I first laid eyes on those fluffy little cuties. They’re like the Pomeranian or Pekingese dogs of the chicken world.
Here’s some of my dog friends (that I pet sit) who look like silkies:
Aside from their fluffy cuteness, silkies are known for being super cuddly. Like a DOG! Behold…Chad holding a silkie chick that belongs to Kitty.
What you seek is seeking you…
Then my friend Kitty got 5 silkie chicks…and my dream got even closer! The photo above is Chad holding one of the chicks, which I affectionately named Stripe already.
My plan was to introduce Chad to the chickies so he would fall in love and agree to let me get a silkie 🙂
At first Chad said we have enough chickens already. Meet our chicken gals. But they’re like potato chips…you always need more 😉
Here’s some beautiful horses we saw on the way to Wade and Kitty’s house…
And I’m reaping aLLLL the benefits
My silkie dream plan sort of worked. Kitty is not planning on keeping all of the silkies when they grow up…so we’re going to buy two of them and keep them IF our existing chickens accept them and allow them to live in the same coop. Yay!
I plan on naming them Tillie Rose and Maggie Lulu Stripe or Maggie Lulu Gizmo (it depends in we get a striped one) after some of my dog friends.
I’ll keep you posted on what happens…
