Hi everyone. I'm hoping to see if anyone can help me determine if my black Silkie, Raven, is a dwarf or if there is something else going on. When I purchased my 3 silkies as babies she was the oldest (per breeder) and she was the biggest out of the3 so I assume she was correct. She is 18 weeks old if breeder gave me correct age. But over time I began to notice lack of development like her 2 siblings. Her crest was not & still isn't really poofy. Her feathers on her neck took a long time to grow in. She is not growing tall like the other 2 & her legs are shorter, so she tends to lay down alot when they are free ranging. I'm assuming because she is much heavier than the other 2 due to her short stature so she's probably tired from carrying her tiny body around. She used to climb the ramp or half climb & flutter up the ramp but now I have to tuck her in because she can't do it. I have to make some adjustments on the ramp to see if she start going up again. Other than her size, she is perfectly fine. She's tiny but mighty. She's the sassiest of my 3 silkies & puts my 11 week old Buff & Wyandotte in their place. I love her to death & think she is perfect even if she doesn't look like what a Silkie is supposed to look like. I just want to make sure that if she is a dwarf that there is nothing for me to be worried about health wise or if there is anything that I need to do to take care of her better, someone out there can let me know. And if she is not a dwarf and somebody else thinks there is something else wrong with her, they can let me know. I'm attaching pics of Raven as a baby & now at 18 weeks old.
