Silkie heaven

 I am not too hard to please..Give me a few silkie chickens and I am content..I attended the Tuesday small animal auction at Keady and although part of me despises the idea of amimals as a commodity .(.and the way small rabbits were grappled and chickens/geese squished into crates)..it is one of the few ways to select a chicken of your dreams..I actually bid on these three lovelies..and "won" them for 6.25 each (I reassured them their home would be grand!)
 They are blending quite well in with the other lonely silkie-she seems to have adopted them into her circle...
 and the piggies were quite pleased to be outside in this glorious non humid weather also
