We have 3.5 week Silkie / Japanese bantam mix chicks. My friend gave up on the 5 week old Mexican bantams that she just got so I told her that I would take and re-home them for her. We let them all out in the kitchen today for some exercise (rabbit hutch is crowded now) and they were herding all over the place. But I thought it funny when the Silkie seems to be checking out the other's feet... What? No Feathers?? The other seemed to inspect in return. No clue on the verdict!
