With an animal loving daughter, my house and yard are bound to fill up with all sorts of furred and feathered friends. These pure breed Silkie hens came into our lives last fall. Tiny and thin upon arrival, we wondered if they would ever look like the photos that the breeder's internet site showed.  In time they filled out, and became fluffier and fluffier.

Sweet natured, quiet, always willing to be cuddled, and very soft to the touch, we are enjoying our little girls....


and Ellie.


  1. How sweet! They look so soft. We had a house lop eared bunny once, named Brodi. Loved him.

  2. Oh my goodness! I have never seen chickens like that. They are absolutely gorgeous! Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

  3. Hi again Debby, how wonderful that you saw a show on Nepal! It was certainly an adventure. Lots to see, but lots of poverty too and the roads were not great which made road trips so much longer than they really needed to be. Add to that the mudslides, landslides, rockslides ... of course we were there during monsoon season. October/November and April are the best months to visit.

    My kids make fun of me when I talk about my blogging friends. :/ Have a great day. Tammy

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment'was nice to 'meet' you! I will be back again to visit you. Have a wonderful weekend!
