    I just got this little one today. It's really sweet. Fluffy, like it has down. I thought she'd have real feathers at 3 weeks at least a few, but I think she's part silkies. She has feathers on her feet, the yellow feet and 4 toes. She's super soft. If you can guess her gender, it'd be helpful!

    That chick doesn't look three weeks old to me, but its been a long time since I had silkie chicks, so that could be why its not feathered well. Its really cute whatever it is!

    That's what I was told. She has 2 week olds and then assorted 3 week olds. I got 2 weeks old (2 sebrights, 2 japs, and a siler duckwing) and then a 3 week old.... She is biggger than the others...

    I agree that is a 3-4 day old chick, is it peeping it's head off?

    I don't think it is a silkie as it has no bump on its head and is beardless.

    It looks a little like a porcelain mille fleur.
