    Another reason I love silkies. The roos are so gentle with the babies. They are always calling the chicks to food. Today I put down some scraps and the silkie hens all rushed over and were pigging out, the chicks couldn't get anywhere near. One of my roos went over, grabbed a beakful and brought it away from the hens, then called the chicks over. I wish I had gotten that on tape.
