Our second nanny-capon is Puffy, the one who windpuffed so bad. He is in with his Silkie chicks, which now number only ten. We have been losing Silkie chicks every so often, and it is always the smallest, least active/vigorous, so I wonder if they are just more delicate or fragile than the regular-feathered chicks. What is truly adorable - and no, I have not yet gotten a pic of this - is when the Silkie chicks cuddle up to Puffy, and then one peeks up at me from under his wing. Here is the closest pic I have to Puffy cuddling with his Silkie chicks.
