    I took my silkies outside for the first time today. They are so cute! Thought I'd share some pics.

    So sweet!!! Just remember to keep an eye out for hawks - even if you live in the burbs! We almost had a tragedy this spring when I had my babes out all within arm's reach while I sat with them in the yard. I saw the sneaky guy & threw my arms out & screamed last second as it swooped. Man, thank goodness for peripheral vision! I've got sweet silkies too! You will have a great time with them. [​IMG]

    Oh wow, I didn't think I needed to worry.. they were pretty much right under us. But I will be sure to be more weary next time! I know we have hawks around, I've heard them.
