I was lucky to see and capture Granny and the Colonel sharing an affectionate moment.
These two are the last remaining of my original Silkies that arrived in 2014. Presumably they are the same age. They could easily be 5 or more years old now.
They were just standing in the shade together for a few minutes, while the other Silkies dust bathed on the other side of the tree.
Granny even offered a little grooming.
Granny is doing extremely well. I thought she was on her way out a while ago, but since the hens all moved outside for the summer, she´s been toddling around with the best of them. I think she can´t see as sharp; she doesn´t bounce out of the way like the others and you have to not step on her.
