    I suppose it's because they are frizzles crossed with Silkies that you might think it strange I would say yes. Knowing how I feel about Silkies.

    However, in the summer I wash the waterers right outside with the hose, but I have to keep a baby bottle brush and another brush with dish soap in it hanging nearby. You know how they get green inside and yuk.

    Well if I have some Sizzles running around the yard I could just grab one of them and use THEM to clean the waterers. Foshizzle my wazizzles. [​IMG]

    Put a capful of Oxine in your waters and they wont turn green. It also helps kill germs in the water.

    pharm, Thanks for sharing your veggie treats for the Silkies. I gave mine
    a large bowl of cut up mixed greens. Asked the Produce Manager and he
    gave me a large bag. He asked when I needed more to ask a day before.

    That means I will have fresh greens all WINTER.

    pharm: The 5 black and blue Silkies I purchased...turned to be 3 hens and 2 Roosters.
    Would have prefered to have one of yours,. But now 2 roosters is more than enough.

    Husband "threw down greens" and our Silkies did NOT eat them. I took a large plastic bowl
    chopped the mixed greens the our Silkies enptyed the bowl. Now ready for more. They are
    elegant. Rancher, no bad comments about our Silkies ha ha.

    Hi Aria,

    just wondering: does the Produce Mgr. give you a discounted price on older veggies? Or is he nice enough to provide them free? I never thought to check with our local store(s).

    Thx,

    Well...thanks for the great tips! I spend more than enough time (and $$) in a couple of local grocery stores. It's worth asking, anyway. [​IMG]
