    How precious!! I had one little silkie that would sleep standing up with the top of its head on the floor. Looks like your chick needs a little blanket and pillow. LOL

    Mine do the same thing. I am new to having little little guys so I thought that was how they sleep. I'll try to get a pic up too.
