I have a group of silkies I moved outside a few weeks ago. They transitioned from a "chick-waterer" to a big-hen water dish. I have one little hen that can't stay out of the water dish. I don't know if she thinks she is fishing, or just wants to say hi to the silkie in the reflection, or what. I go out and she will be standing in the middle of the bowl, wet from head to toes, just looking at me like "...what?".
I scoop her up and bring her in to sit in front of the fire until she dries out - we are beginning to think she goes swimming just so she can come in and dry off.
I wouldn't worry about it so much if it were August, but dang it is getting *cold* out there.
Does anyone else have a water-borne silkie ?
