    She (he?) is ten weeks and can barely see. Poor thing, I want to give her a trim.

    I've never given my silkie a haircut before but I guess you can try. [​IMG]

    I trim the muffs on mine (the puff of feathers under their eyes). I find that's what usually blocks their vision. Most of mine have bonnet crests, so they can't see up- but they can see down and to the sides :)
    Good luck!

    My silkie sometimes does weird head movements I think it's because she can't see well.
