    Beautiful! I want one of these.
    Does anyone in Connecticut have Porcelain or Lavender silkies available??



    I used baby shampoo, something mild.

    I use a store brand lavender scented baby shampoo. NO idea if this is what the "pros" would use to make a bird show ready but it made sense to me and it seems to work ....

    Here is my very ugly silkie...

    And then I have 3 others that are much cuter! They are all close to this one...

    On the BBS birds, white, and paint, I use Clairol Shimmer Lights.
    It's for old ladies, and has a very faint blue tint to it.
