    My chick's been in our garage which had lots of cobwebs and dust and some stuck to the hair on his head which made black strands of hair. I was to cut it off. Should I? Should I just leave it and see if it'll fix itself? He gets scared when I hold a sissor next to his face. Will it grow back? Plus he'll be moving all around and I might cu his eye out. This picture was taken 3 months ago and his hair has gotten blacker. I keep him a\\way from the garage floor now.

    bestbudy leave the silkie's hair alone, it will be fine, you said chick?? and you refer to the silkie as a he. Trust me when I tell you until it crows or lays an egg you cant tell for sure what sex a silkie is.

    I agree with Toni just leave his hair alone & it will be fine. No need to risk hurting Corn. As far as what to call Corn that is up to you. It don't matter none to Corn anyway. If he is easy for you then by all means call Corn a he.

    I'd leave him alone also...If it's bothering you that much, wipe his head off with a damp papertowel or a facecloth.
