    O yeah my kids love them, they're so cute we have silkies which are flightless but the eggs that have hatched this time are half silkies and half another breed. Off to see if anymore have hatched.

    The other problem is that we have 2 cats and not sure it would be a great combination!!

    awww we now have 3 chicks, unfortunetly the fourth (our only silkie egg) didnt make it, really gutted.... shes was fully formed and had started to break out but obviously the egg had been too tough for her and we didn't realise.

    Will add some more pics of the 3 of them soon x
