I have a dumb question.
Do non-bearded silkies have some light short feathers under their eyes [cheeks] and under their chin, or are they mostly just black skin there?
I ask because I have a few hatchery chicks and am trying to determine if they're bearded or not. I thought they were, but one blue I'm thinking now isn't. Since they're hatchery, they aren't as good as a breeders' and less likely to be obvious I believe. They are about 6-7 weeks old now.
Hi, I know there are a lot of interesting topics happening now, but I'm just wondering if any silkie experts know the answer to the above... ? Thx
