your dose of cute


OK, that's all you need.

We got this chick at the feed store.  The girl said she was a bantam Silkie (sp?).  I call her adorable.  Her little feathers stick out all which way and look like angel wings.  Here we are teaching her to perch.
 

It's like having a living powder puff.  But she's kind of warm and damp too... like everyone else right now.


Long afternoons have made my tomatoes double their height this last week.  It's kind of a crazy explosion down there... time to pick like mad before the new moon.

the Chicken breed is called a Frizzle - it's not a silkie, silkies have soft looking feathers - kinda looking like a walking cooton wool ball, lolz

although Silkie's are called Bantams, they actually aren't, silkies only come in one size - but being a small breed, most call them bantams.
