Ok, I've been hanging out in here too long (and I'm fairly new) But, the more I read about these 'evil Silkies,' the more I think I may possibly want one (or two, even?). I was trying so hard to be pracitcal, picking a bunch of hard working dual purpose girls (I even call them My Working Girls - kinda feel almost like a pimp - especially since I just smuggled in a roo last week). Umm, NOT that I am even considering doing it, but could a silkie or two live in an aviary with my doves, perhaps. My big girls (and roo) would eat them alive. (OMG! I just said 'them ' - what happened?!?!? I thought, maybe, just maybe one -only one!) You people are so bad for me!
