    Hello, my white silkie has grown to be such a handsome guy. He is 7-8 months old. We entered him in a local fair for this weekend coming. He just took a bath and was blow-dryed. He is not happy in the pics, but I was just wondering what you guys thought of him?

    What a handsome little snowman! LOL I don't know if you should trim any of his feathers...maybe that would be against the rules? I would google it first. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replys! I won't touch his stray feathers, I think they want them in "natural" form. Is it because he is only 7-8 months old that he still has all those stray feathers? I have others that never had those. My daughter has been really wanting to enter the fair this year with one of her birds. I have a female that "was" nicer than him, but had a lesion near her vent that finally healed (others pecking her). We are waiting for her "butt feathers" to grow back.
