    Welcome to BYC, Mandee! [​IMG]
    Cute babies! [​IMG] As far as I know, silkies aren't that much different from other chickens, unless you are showing them, which it sounds like you aren't interested in. I think show birds have to be bathed... [​IMG]

    Enjoy the site! [​IMG]

    If all goes well i may get into showing them. But first i have to have success with breeding them and learning their standards which will take me a litte while.
