    I have a splash silkie, and her [​IMG] feathers on her wings are kind of curly. Is this normal? This is my first silkie [​IMG] so I'm not sure...

    Thanks!

    I had a girl answer my craigs post that she has Silkie/Frizzle crosses. Needless to say I didn't want any cause I figure it's Silkies trying to disquise themselves so they can get in my coop and take over. Kinda like those "pods" did in that movie. You know, you go to sleep liking "real" chickens and wake up "silkieized". Gives me the willies good and proper!

    Those little guys are next on my list! I'm so into frizzles it's not even funny [​IMG] I wasn't worried about it, I'm not into showing or anything "fancy" like that, I just wanted confirmation so I know what's what. I love learning about my chickies, and this is the best place for it!! [​IMG]
