At least now I know that my silkies aren't being weird by being on the ground. I am just thinking forward to next winter when the coop ground just gets a little damp. I guess I can keep lots of wood chips on it. They free range during the day so the coop/run is only for sleeping and eating. I might try putting an old crate in there upside down and see if they will get on it. The ground just seems so, I don't know, dirty?? And they have such pretty white feathers.
I guess I need to make sure that I always own more than one silkie. It would be a lonely pile of one.
Hello I need some help with my silkies I haven't gotten them yet but I would like to know is there any way u can get them to roost as I have heard that sometimes when they silkie pile they can actually suffocate each other
