    I don't know anything to much about Silkies and the three I got are my first..so got a question..Right around there eyes is there suppose to be black, not feathers or any fuzz just like black..didn't know if this is normal or if something was wrong with my silkies..all three are like that..[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Please ease my mind and tell it is suppose to be that way..

    I just brought one in and washed it and dried the head area and it looks to me like little brown bugs fleas or mites buried in around the eyes.. there were little crawly tine bround bugs crawling around..


    What is it and how do I get rid of it ..I have DE does that help or need something else and if so what I only have a tractor supply here.
