Okay silkie lovers -- the kids have convinced me to add a couple of silkies to our little backyard flock. There will be both black and white silkie chicks at TSC in a couple of weeks. Alas, all of the photos I've seen of silkies show beautifully bathed birds looking like white or black puffballs. But how do these guys look au natural, so to speak? Are the white ones prone to looking dirtier an unbathed state than the black ones? Our girls will be kept in an ark and moved to fresh grass every day, so there's no dirt-floored pen to worry about. We all like the white ones best, but I worry that they'll look like dirtballs rather than the fluffy cuties we see in the books....maybe black is a more practical choice. What do you all think?
