I have two bantam silkies. A black and a white. They are ten weeks old. The black one is much smaller than the white one. The white one has a fluffy ball of a head, and this black one seems to have less of a puff. Here are pictures of him/her. What do you think?hmm.png

Boys usually have crazier poofs than females so i'm gonna go ahead and say male.

Lol ok. Yes, I called this a Silkie, but they called it a Bantam Silkie at the feed store where I got it from.
I just say "Silkie" for short.

there aren't very many large fowl silkies, in the U.S. that is.
