Let me know, if you own Silkies, what you think of them and your experiences with them. Are they hard to keep clean? They must be a little harder to care for than hard-feather breeds because of all that fluffiness, especially the white ones, but giving one a bath looks pretty fun!

Are they good broodies/mothers? Do they often go broody? Are they good egg layers? Etc.....
Feel free to post pictures, too!


So, would you recommend getting Silkies or not? What do you have to say about them?


Thanks!
