    If you look up ^ at the very top click on "Learning center" there is tons of information on carinf for your chicks.
    Where did you get them ? The person you got them from should be able to help you as well I would hope.

    How old are they ?
    As far as training to show i can't help you as IM not into that. Hopefully someone else can.

    Good luck !

    I guess the training is to handle them a lot - A bird should notice the judge but not be flighty -- A true showbird knows exactly what to do and when to do it LOL Like smiling for the camera they turn it on ---

    What color Silkies do you have ?
