    I absolute love my silkie. [​IMG]
    My little white silkie aka 'Frenchie' is the sweetest girl. I can approach her any time and she assumes the position and after picking her up she purrs for me. My only problem is she goes broody for a week or so every month! I pick her up from the nesting box and take her out into the back yard so she will eat & drink.
    I am thinking of borrowing my neighbors white silkie roo & letting her have a clutch.

    Oh man look at the teeth on that black one. Don't let him out at
    night and keep any dogs, cats, or small children away from him.
    Do you own a pair of metal gloves yet?
