    Let the crew out yesterday. Keep thinking something didn't look right with Bulou the silkie roo. Finally figured it out. All of his tail feathers are gone.I guess he is one lucky roo seeing on how that's all he lost.

    HE does look a fright, thats for sure. Even more so than most of his homely kind, poor guy.

    I guess I missed it, though - what happened to him?

    Silkies are not homely, they make us humble with their beauty [​IMG]
    I for one think he is cuddly cute and looks like a new breed of silk....rumpless!
    I just wanted to add....I didn't realize he was so small until I looked at him compared to the hose...is he a partridge? What stock is he from?
    <hugs> for Bulou
