"silkies" the fluffy chicken

I just love the chicken breed known as
Silkies.
Maybe it's because they are small and fluffy.  I don't know but I love them.
If you take the time to hold them they can become like a pet.
We have had some so tame they come when we call their name.

They also make excellent Mothers.  Another reason I love them.
They stay with their babies and it looks like they count them and talk to them.
We have had one mother die trying to save her babies.  One of our mommy's took on 
a red tail hawk and the hawk retreated!  We have new babies on the farm and of
course I had to photograph them.

 If you ever have a chance to have chickens try the silkie.
You might just fall in LOVE.
