    What is the best situation to raise silkies so their fluffy feet are cleaner? These aren't show silkies, but they're just so gross....mine are still just babies too. thanks.

    I have silkies as well so I know what you mean, if there is a mud puddle, they find it. It sounds like the run is probably dirt if they are getting that muddy. Have you thought about adding sand to the run?
