Welcome to Backyard chickens. In Uk you have the large ones, in US we only have bantams. I have never seen a larger silkie. Good luck with yours. If you put "Silkie thread," in the search box it will come up for you.
Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to joined the BYC family.
I love silkies!
Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.
Chicks peep for many different reasons. They are cold, hungry, thirsty, hot, lonely or hurt. However if they are just softly peeping and don't seem to be in pain or anything, they are fine. Little peeps are totally normal.
