Silkies are evil creatures. I've made other comments but no one ever responds, as if it is a taboo subject. Who else hates these furry little bastages and why? Someone else here must want to bite their heads off like me. They bite. They whine. My roosters used to bite my feet. I then bit them, well chewed them. Even my purple one (avatar) was nasty. Must have been the purple dye. We have 7 more silkies in the bator. My wife made me do it. With my luck we will have a 100% silkie hatch. And don't get me started on the vast Right Wing Silkie Conspiracy. Disclaimer: Not trying to start a flame post. Just having fun here. All opinions are appreciated.
