Our dear Snowball peacefully flew into the clouds this morning, although it is heartbreaking to loose such a wonderful Silkie who always gave us a good laugh. For the past two days he somehow fell ill, and we knew we might loose him. Snowball will be missed dearly by our family and friends who got to know him since he was a pullet two years ago. I am really heartbroken at this point. I was looking forward to hatching chicks with the other silkies.
