Interesting and Fun

Pros: Interesting looking, fluffy, friendly, docile, go broody

Cons: easy target for predators, not too heat tolerant

I have a showgirl rooster and a showgirl hen. They have all the good qualities of a silkie. They are sweet and soft. They go broody and make good mothers. They lay every other day or so. They make a good conversation starter. ;-) I love my showgirls and the rooster is friendly too.

Just like the silkies, they don't tolerate the heat very well. They need shade, cool water, and possibly a fan when it is really hot. I lost two this past summer due to heat. They need lots of protection against predators because they are slow and maybe not so smart.

So adorable!  Where did you get them?  I have two Silky Roos that I love-- so pretty and sweet.  It is fun to have show stoppers to mix in with the usual Rhodies and so on!
