Awe peepers!

The babies are four days now and still as cute as ever!

One of them, Little Oliver Mongfoot, had a crooked toe that needed some straightening so he's wearing a little slipper for a couple of days and being a very good sport about it ;-)

OK fine, we have no idea which ones are boys and which ones are girls but it's still fun to pretend like we do. I'm hoping for more girls than boys but with my rotten luck that won't happen... We can only keep one boy from this hatch so crossing fingers daddy Tyler did a good job and gave us girls!

The three other babies look like this, light grey and cream. 

No idea what they'll look like growing up 
but it'll be interesting and they can only be adorable since, 
after all, they are sweet silkies :-)

Sooo cute! Hope the toe gets better and he/she grows up big and strong :) It's always fun to not know what you get and then watch and see what they grow up to look like.
