    I would LOVE to see the difference between bearded and non-bearded silkies! Pictures pretty please?? [​IMG]

    Can you tell if a silkie will be bearded when they are chicks? Is one type more common than the other??

    Quote:I'd love to see some pictures of bearded and non-bearded chicks. I have some B/B/S Silkie chicks here and would love to know if any of them are bearded.
