    Are there Silkies with no feather legs and no head puffs?

    Does anybody have any or know of any chickens that have silkie feathering but don't have a head puff or feather legs? I always imagine chickens like that. I think it would be really cool to have chickens like that.... If there isn't any, maybe I'll try to make some one day. I want a silkie with...

    Showgirl Genetics + Satin

    Alright, hope im not in over my head here. I want to make sure I have this atleast somewhat right. I have this satin showgirl. And all of birds from the same hatch are showgirls except one roo.

    Can chickens treat other chickens harshly because of their colour/breed?

    This year I hatched 3 silkies under a broody hen. We got two buff and one black. They’ve grown up without any fights or fusses and their mother has now stopped looking after them and has went back to the big coop- which is all good. however, upon adding two buff Orpington pullets to their coop...

    Silkie colours

    Hello, I have been reading about silkie colour groups, and was wondering what happens if you mix them? I have blues, and have my eye on an adorable paint rooster but I read not to try to breed to paint. Thanks

    Silkies Hen or Roo?

    They all look the same to me! I’ve known all along the white one was a roo based on personality and now he’s crowing so it’s confirmed. Pretty sure the black one is a pullet, but I’m terrible at gendering. Can anyone tell me what these 4 birds are? I’ve labeled them in the pictures for easier...

    Alchemist farm month old silkie roo? Pic heavy

    I know its very early, but I was wondering if someone experienced with silkies can help. He is a paint silkie from alchemist farm, and just so cute and fluffy. However, while I hoped for a girl, seeing how tall he stands, how independent, and how big his feet and body is I think I can guess for...

    When are showgirls sexable?

    I'm getting some 5 week old showgirls and I just wondered when they are sexable? Are they the same as standard silkies and take awhile? I can post close up pics when I get them.

    Silkie Hen Pants a Lot

    So I noticed that my one hen pants a lot? She often pants when it's not even hot outside and none of the other chickens pant just her. I'm not sure why she pants though she's in the shade and has plenty of cool water. When I listen to her it sounds like she was running or like she was hot but I...

    Odd Silkie Colours

    Hey! So I've only been hatching and rearing my little flock for a couple of years now but I am so baffled by my Silkies.

    So i got two new chicks and have started introducing them to the flock. The two new ones are the white one and the little dark one. I'm almost positive that the white one is a hen and my rooster must think so too because he tried to hop on her. I'm not sure about the little one though and i...

    Should i be giving my chickens any preventive medicine?

    So I was getting to deworm my horses and the thought popped into my mind if I should be deworming or giving any other preventative medicine to my chickens? I don't believe anyone has any issues or worm or anything from what I can tell, but are there any preventative medicines I should be giving...
