    today my 4 3 week old silkies (i got them yesterday) got their first bath today!!! they r a lot sweeter now that i hadled them a lot with my hand.
    here is what i did.
    i took a warm damp cloth and wet them over their body under their wings and down their legs.
    then i filled the tube with 1/2 inch of warm water and let the silkies soke their feet for 3 1/2 mins. they really enjoyed that part.
    then i took them out and padded them down with a dry cloth.
    after that, i took a hair dryer put it on low with the air on warm and dryed them throughly also it fluffed them all up.

    now they look gorgeous!

    all wet after padding them with the cloth


    now their fav part "the feet soke."

    "just relax guys it's all gonna be alright"

    NOW all fluffed upand as good as new

    That third picture is adorable! [​IMG] I'm still trying to fathom how they could have voluntarily stayed still for so long!
