    i have 6 baby chicks they are nearly 3 weeks now. some of them have the flight fethers but some of them have "funny" flight feathers they are very thin and more furry like same with the rest of the body. like also look different to the other chicks there fluffy feathers on there body seem a little spikey. its hard to explain they seem to look tatty if anyone under stands me.
    the eggs were mixed bantam so could it be some are cross silkies cause was told there feathers are different.
    has anyone got a 3 week old silkie chick pic i could compare to
    thanks
