more babies?

This is a baby silkie chicken. This one is day old and she will be white when grown. They lack correct 'feathers' so appear to have fur instead. They are adorable. I LOVE them! Right now I have the six I first bought, plus one I names "spare" since he/she was alone at the store a few days later being beaten up by larger birds.
