    Feed them by hand, and carry them around a lot. Silkies IMO are very easy to tame as they are naturally friendly. Of course they'll go through phases and act completely phyco at times, but as long as you are persistent with them, they'll be your little buddy. [​IMG]

    hold them a lot and carry them... they will eventually calm down to you. give them a lot of attention!

    Don't keep to many in the same pen when they are young. I find with just a few they seem to come to me better. Some just tend to want more attention than others.
