It's true, I do NOT like silkies.. I dont coo when I see pictures of them. I have no desire to cuddle them, hatch a million fuzzies silkies babies, or put up with their blindness, inability to roost, and general clumsiness. I dont think the overload of feathery feet is cute, I dont want to bath them, cuddle them, or put bows in their hair. I like my chickens chicken shape, with chicken-ey feather. I like them being able to jump on my arm to be closer to the treats. I like the big daily eggs. I like the fact that they can take care of themselves in my backyard, find the roost without any trouble, and they know when cuddling time is over and its time for them to be a chicken, and me to be a person. Speak up folks, Who else DOESNT like Silkies, and thinks they are useless and weird, except as a walking incubator you have to feed?? EDIT: I havent read this thread since I woke up, but I had a PM of a member having a tantie about my 'I hate silkies thread'... I do not hate them.. I dont like them, personal taste and I shouldnt have to read a tantrum because my tastes dont align with yours. If you are offended.. dont read it... duh, there are plenty of people who like silkies, go talk to them. I just wanted to see if I could find some people who DONT like silkies, I'm sorry if your beloved birds recently died, there is no reason for you to throw a tantrum at me because my taste in chickens and yours are different.
