    Hello, Gerri is 5 months old and is the sweetest silkie I ever owned. I just wanted some opinions on her quality. I have tried to keep her as clean and white, but with all the rain this summer, it has not been easy. Any tips on getting the yellow out of her feet feathers would be appreciated. Should I breed her? Thanks for looking!!

    Here is poor Gerri with her stylin' hair-do. I have to allow her to see when she is out roaming the yard.

    Ohh, yes! She is very pretty! I would not only breed her (to an equally nice Roo), I'd show her too. That's my opinion. [​IMG]

    There is a shampoo for white dogs that people who show them use. It's blue I believe. I forget the name of it, but also there is something that people use to get the tear stains off of white dog faces. I think this might be suitable for a shicken.
