    That is Buck, my Splash Silkie rooster.

    He is full size in the pic, and is typical size for a Silkie bantam. Their feathers are very fluffed out so they look much bigger than one they really are. I just weighed him and he weighs 3 pounds, 3 ounces. Hens are a little bit smaller.

    He is very tame, not aggressive to people in the least bit. He is one of my favorite chickens. Thanks for asking about him! [​IMG]
