    Hello everyone, I'm new here and pretty new to having chickens as well. These Silke chicks are 3 weeks old and when I got them I didn't know that they came in 'bearded' and 'non' bearded. What do you think these are? The silkies are the 2 on the left and the little black one. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Welcome to Backyard chickens Laurelannu! I hope you have as much fun on this site as I have. You have some cuties on you hands wether they are bearded or not! I can not tell the difference, I would post them in the page that CTKen suggested!

    I don't know how early beards show up on silkies. But as of your photo they appear to be beardless. I cannot see the dark ones head or face well enough to tell.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Your chicks are non-bearded hatchery quality.

    Dark one *could be* bearded, not clean face pic to see it... white ones are definitely not bearded...
