Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  If you like silkies,  you will really enjoy the "Silkie thread." Would love to see photos of your silkies when they are several weeks older.

 

Silkies are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they lay or crow.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Just in case you didn't see it, the Home page banner has a link to the chicken breed focus going on now and it's about silkies. You might find that interesting since you have 2 lovely ones yourself.
