    Silkie lovers! Is there any foods that help or hurt silkies and they way they bloom? Any foods that you have noticed really help em look their best? Or things I should avoid? I have 9 little silkie chicks! I am so in love. [​IMG] Thanks so much!

    Ive found that my silkies do best on 20% crumbles, rather than regular layer pellets.
