    My Silkies love treats! (who doesn't!?) But they go absolutely nuts over one in particular...PopTarts. Yep. Crust, frosting, filling and all! They Immediately ranked high on their "Faves List". They also, unbelievably, delight in orange cream popsicles! I have to wonder, "Are they normal?"

    So, do you have any thoughts, tips or suggestions on these treasured treats?

    They're Silkies, and you have to ask if they are normal? Interesting on the orange cream Popsicles, wonder if it is the color, they do seem to like cantaloupe and squash/pumpkin, have you done experiments with other colors of Popsicles? Not the best time of year for it, but wonder how they'd feel about lime or rootbeer Popsicles, is it only fruit flavors? Pop tarts I can kind of see, they tend to be kind of speckley looking with the stuff they put on the frosting and can see that attracting chickens, kind of like they always eat the toppings off the bagels first, or the sesame seeds off the buns.

    LOL, well i wouldn't know i can honestly say that would not have been a food i would offer the fluffballs. I actually all kidding aside don't think either would be good for them to consume. As the PP said could be the colour? ours don't mind pumpkin.

    I've been wanting to ask about this for awhile - the orange cream Popsicles were eaten in dead summer though. :) I dunno, they always were rather comical... lol I just wanted see what everyone else thought about it! Maybe...they got brain freeze from the pops and never thawed...! lol! ;) Perhaps I shall refrain from the pops.

    Any more advice/comments?
