Quote:How can anyone NOT like Silkies??? Actually, I didn't much care for their appearance, either, but have 5 now, and now I wonder what's not to like. I do have one that is forever going broody, to the extent that she raises chicks to about 5 or 6 weeks, then gets broody again. Last time I let her raise a couple of keets. One drowned, but the other is still with Mommy. Mommy can't figure out how to get rid of this needy kid. She goes into the box, half-grown keet cuddles next to her. Now she's laying on air, and winter is coming on rapidly, and her keet protests loudly because she can't get Mommy to leave the broody box.
