    I have 2 white silkes that are the cutest in the world! One is nammed Fuzzy and the other one is Belle. Fuzzy and Belle are both the same and were born at the same time. Belle though is the sweetest of them all and loves to be cuddled if you sit in the yard. But....what is worring me is that she has not grown at all. Fuzzy is 2wice as big now! :eek:
    should I be worried? [​IMG]
    When the 2 months old stand side to side she is just soo small!!

    has anyone had this happen with their silkes?
    Is it bad she is not growing?

    Please let me know.......
    I am a worried mother hen.....
    Thank you!

    Does anyone know why the other silkes are the same size as fuzzy? are they all roosters! akkkkk!!

    Is this why Belle is so small, she is a hen?

    Thanks all!

  6. Hi Theresa,
    I sure hope you don't have a pen full of roosters.
    Are they getting 'streamers' in their crests yet?
