Monsters @ 9wks

Post by Suz on Thu Aug 21, 2008 11:23 pm

my babies are growing up fast only 9 weeks old and they tower over the little silkies. i tried to take a few comparison pictures, but the silkies were being nasty Evil or Very Mad and terrified the poor babies.

Hopefully boy Brahma - haven't decided on a name yet but its between 'Galloping Gunty' or 'Wondering Wullie'



POL Silkie hen bullying poor little (hopefully) girl 'Bunty'



Silkie terrifying both babies Sad

Is 'Wullie' a cock then? Is that why he's got those dark feathers?

i'm hoping Galloping Gunty Wundering Wullie is a cock because his face & comb is redder than Bunty's (doesn't really show in these pics). He's called a light Brahma but carries the blue gene from his Dad, Bunty for some reason is white though see is supposed to be a Blue Columbian like her mum & dad.

Don't tell KP but i have just bid on 6 more unrelated Blue columbian brahma eggs ... fingers crossed I'll be able to make up 2 breeding groups.

Its your fault, if you didn't force me to look at the possible new silkie house, i wouldn't have accidentally typed brahma in the search box then scrolled down the page until these jumped at me .... Smile Smile

Well, I've been measuring all the potential places I could have put a new Silkie house in my garden. I just couldn't find enough room. I'd have to re-arrange my collection of tree ferns yet again! Might be easier to cover the whole garden with aviary meshing at this rate! Embarassed

So, I'm posting 3 eggs for Claire to hatch tomorrow. The rest of the potential babies are going up for adoption when they hatch. Compiling a list of potential foster parents already. It's like having babies, but without having the responsibility of raising them. Twisted Evil
