    Welcome to BYC. Right now NJ is nearly as hot as AZ and far more humid.

    The girl I lost was one of my oldest Silkies. This is the 2nd one this year. The other Silkie just disappeared = no body, no feathers just gone and it was during the middle of the afternoon.We have bobcat, coyotes, owls, hawks and snakes. Not sure what got her.
    My dogs are good about warning me when something is in the areas.

    Sorry that you lost your silkies. I just started doing those a few month's ago. I have been working with the naked neck's for over a year and 1/2 though.
