    So what do you think are we too small for our age?

    Love the little puffy butts! Well, Silkies are bantams so they are pretty small. Silkies also mature a lot slower than other birds. My Silkies were pretty tiny but at about three months, they started growing like weeds!!
    I say enjoy them while they are small! [​IMG]
    This is Gwen at two months... She still looked like a tiny baby.

    They look about right. I call this the ugly stage. Hard to believe they will look so much better. I have some about a week behind yours. Can't wait till they hit the two to three month stage.
