    [​IMG] How is the silkie doing- they usually get picked on a lot because they don't look like a real chicken. With their crest and beards obscuring their vision they may not seem as active as other breeds. If you don't intend to show - you could trim some of the crest and beard back so she won't be the last one to notice predators.

    She is good we've only had her for a couple weeks and last night was the first time we didn't have to pick her up to put her in the house. No plans to show her, my 9 year old Lulu just realy wanted a "Poofy headed chicken" as she called it. She hangs out with our Cochin a lot. We got them the same day. The rest we raised from chicks.
