    These kids were sold as Silkies at a local co-op. My profile pic is when I first got them (April 1 or 2), these pics are today. Note: the 2 blue littles are Silkies I got from a breeder, these are the other 4. [​IMG]

    I check the feet and skin color. Silkies will have black skin and an extra toe, 4 go forward, 1 goes back.

    They all have black skin and five toes. They all have the frilly wing/tail feathers, no flat feathers. I just thought their little heads would be fluffier. I guess it's like any other animal, different lines have different appearances. Love the little stinkers. I hope to get at last half girls and not all Roos!
