    This is Juliet on FF! (fermented feed)

    & Juliet after her bath and haircut! If this doesnt work, the silkies will NOT get FF anylonger as I had a terrible time cleaning her up since its at her face and nostrils, I pray I didnt hurt her with all that water at her face! I cut most of her poof off, one plus is that she can finally see as you always had too much poof it covered her entire face. I had to be VERY CAREFUL not to cut her wattles under that mess at her beak too! She loved the meal worms at blow dryer break times!

    Leave the eggs. Candle them before tossing. There is a possibility that they're still viable, just very late because of the unplugging.

    If you can hold off or you want to try incubating again, I have 6 EEs due to hatch next weekend. I have 7 of their eggs to sell as well. These are F1 EEs (Delaware x Ameraucana).

    How long did everything take? I have one bird with this problem. She went wild when I was bathing her, and it was worse when I was trying to cut. Please give me some details!

    barbiegirl ~you still think she looks pretty with half a poof??? LOL

    MC~ I stuck her in the utility sink and just started cutting, she just stood there stupified! LOL but our birds are very very very friendly. I got a little worried because she did get water in her nose at times, I hope she will be ok, I didnt drown her, but I dont think I will be doing FF for them anymore. it took more time to dry her with the blow dryer than anything.

    What can I say, I'm a sucker for silkies. It doesn't take too long to bathe silkies, but drying them is another story. It takes forever to blow dry them. But they look so pretty when they are all clean and puffy. :D
