    Got my first Silkie this weekend and what a great breed!!!! I just love her! Gave her a bath when I got her home and blow dried her. So calm and patient. Layed an egg today, super friendly, just great. She was not a pampered bird either. Just one of a bunch of other ones the guy owned. And she is still so friendly. I would totally recommend getting a Silkie to anyone. On the hunt for more now. So if you are in Northern Illinois and you have some for sale........... lol.
