Hi! I am a brand new chicken owner and working on getting my first flock together. Meet Isabelle (Hoping she stays a SHE In my first set of chicks I have a bantam silkie chick that is pale yellowish in color and I am thinking it will be a white silkie. But Whoa. Today I see black barring on "her" wings?? Here are some pics. Any input or schmoozing about how lovely my Isabelle is...is welcome!! P.S. Isabelle is 2 weeks old, doesn't mind getting her picture taken, and was in a plastic box only to protect her while I was getting a quick few pics of her. She was the only one of my chicks that stood still for a few pics, patiently, THEN asked for cuddles. Now since I've bragged on Isabelle I have to show my only other silkie, MUCH different personality (not the go-getter that Isabelle is) is the lovely Prudence. Prudence is a bit shy, prefers to hang around the edges of all the activity in the brooder box and is happy to snuggle with anyone of the other babies. She usually is the first to nap too, but not for long. She eats casually whereas Isabelle eats nonstop and quite greedily! Again, All my chicks are females in my mind until CROWING proves me otherwise. I have to at least try to be hopeful! I only have 4 baby chicks and I need HENS. So, I give you Prudence, clearly to me she will be a black bantam silkie, but other than that, I have no idea and all comments are welcome. Thank you for letting me brag a bit on my first silkie babies! This site is awesome and I have learned so much!
