    Hello BYC!

    So, I bought a Partridge Silkie chick in April, that was born March, 13th. As you can see by the pictures, she isn't really a full breed. Could anyone tell me exactly what kind of bird I have here? Also, I am pretty sure it's a pullet, but any guidance on that topic would be great too!


  2. She's just a typical pet quality hatchery partridge silkie. Non bearded.

    Haha, thanks guys! She lives with 3 other regular sized chickens, and is obviously on the bottom of the pecking order. Even at this age, if she is more than 10 feet away from the pack, she just sits there and cries until the other birds tend to her.

    Wow! Excellent timing on the 2nd shot of her yard mate shaking the dust off, very cool photo! She's, yes, a she, is adorable. She's lacking shank/foot feathering (kind of odd not seeing anything there as it's usually very easily expressed at least to some degree), but she's very cute regardless.
