any input to being creative to get my silkies feathers out of her eyes?
You can very carefully cut back the crest and beard feathers - just enough so she can see. Their IQ goes up quite a bit once they can see. They really aren't the "airheads," most people think they are. Thank you for joining Backyard chickens.
It's best if you have an assistant hold the bird to keep it still. They can wrap a towel around the body to control wings and feet.
thank you! I do keep the feathers around there eyes trimmed but didn't know if a bow or something cute would also help?
We have little soft elastics around our silkies feathers to keep them out of their eyes. They've been wearing these elastics since last summer without issue. They are very loose, but enough to hold the feathers up.
Hello! Welcome to Byc! it's great to have you here!
thank you so much I think I'm going to try that. they will look so cute also.
