    How on earth do you keep them that clean?!? My little silkies are constantly getting food all over their face, and head! Do you bath them, or is yours just not as big a piggy as mine are? Oh and he looks alot like my black one that people are telling me (and I thought) is a roo. Good luck!

    Obviously not an expert in any way, shape, or form, but something about that bird just says 'roo' to me.

    Quote:You think she looks clean...I thought she looked kinda crusty lol I don't do a darn thing...now if you feed her yogurt that is a totally different story...and I've only given her a bath once and strictly for my entertainment purposes only lol....
