Spa day for Silkies

I am always bathing my silkies whether there is a show or not. They tend to get very dirty, very fast! My favorite shampoo of choice is Johnsons baby shampoo. It cleans them well, gets the wax off their feathers, and leaves them smelling very nice! I don't use different tubs for my silkies, I prefer to just use the hose in the sink and since their feathers are not like other birds I can scrub them pretty well with the shampoo. To dry I use a low power professional grooming blower and dry them almost completely. They end up nice and fluffy and ready for the runway ;D
