Okay, weird question. I just got my first Silkie Bantams...they are about 2 weeks old. I am handling them everyday. I was wondering if anyone knows how they like to be "petted"? Do they like to be stroked on the breast, back, head? Or not at all anywhere???? Thanks.
I've had Silkies for years and all of mine have loved to be petted and hugged even the roos. They make the best pets and are easy to tame. So cuddly and loveable.
The silkie's I have now I generaly rubbed then down the back and then fluff their tails.I tried to hold them a lot as babie's.They are now 5 months old.A lot of my bird's especialy my cochin's like under the wing rubs
.I had 2 polish hen's that were insane for it they would raise their wings up to get a good rub down.Every bird is different some don't like being messed with at all.
we have a silkie hen who walks up to my 5 year old daughter and sits down to be petted on her back- the two of them are very attached to each other, great pet!
