Here is a video of my five Chinese Silkie chickens. Pompadour, the Silkie with the biggest pompom is the inspiration for a series of children’s books, poems and illustrations that I am working on with the Benedicte and Aletha (see The Ballade of Pomadour and Blanca). Blanca is a hamster owned by Aletha. She has 9 offspring, and maybe more in the future, and they will also feature in the stories.
