- heleneaamlidI LOVE SILKIES!!!!!! Saw one on tv many years ago and fell in love. How are they to keep? Friendly? Good eggs? How old do they get? Are they expensive? Im sooo happy I found this account!!
- its_a_silkie_world@soieblanche they are fabulous pets and extremely friendly! They are pretty simple to keep given that they cannot fly (it's funny to watch them try however)! They aren't the best layers but when they do bless us with an egg it is always delicious! The birds price depends on their quality, my self blues and partridge birds are hatchery, and my five little white ones are from a breeder, I find that the breeders will charge anywhere from 5$ a bird to 20$ depending on show quality. As for housing and keeping costs I find they aren't very expensive! My sheep and ducks are the pocket burners!
- heleneaamlid@its_a_silkie_world thank you for the long reply! Thats really cheap! I doubt they would be that cheap here in Norway and I can not have animals right now either. But it's a dream and nice to learn :) how are they in cold temperatures. They look very fluffh but can they be outside in -10C*?
- its_a_silkie_world@soieblanche To my surprise when I got them I was informed that silkies are very cold hardy! (Living in canada it's an important trait) I guess the fluff works like a warm coat!
- heleneaamlid@its_a_silkie_world they sound perfect.... I dont eat much egg so if they dont give too many either its even better!! Looking forward to more silkie pics ^^
