I have 9 red silkies in the brooder. Received them last Thursday through US Mail as day-old chicks from Ideal Hatchery. This is a photo of what mine will look like when they are grown.
We have two black silkie hens, Bulli and Bepop, but no rooster.

Of course, I like red critters, so I ordered the red variety.
I got some new address labels. And yes, I raise mostly RED Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. Notice the conformation of the goat, that's what we breeders are shooting for.
