    When can I put them outside? They are about a month old. The frizzle is a bit bigger than the Silkie

    Thanks so much.... I'm such a novice at this! I'm used to dealing with horses! Feel like a new Father with his first baby! Ha!
    It does get down to about 45-50 right now in the mornings.... the frizzle doesn't look like she has enough feathers, and as she grows, I'm not even sure she is a full Frizzle!

    Can you confirm these are (blue) Frizzle, (Black) Silkies? Approx 5 weeks, both female.

    They appear to be two Silkie Chicks...A white for sure...The darker one it is hard to make out the colour with the heat lamp light...I do not see any Frizzled feathers though...
    Still cute chicks....

    Cheers!

    They could be crosses? The white one seems to be getting something? Usually they hatch with fluffy tops.....

    Oh, dang, I haven't got a clue! Haha! All I know at this point is they both have feathered legs the white/grey one has "wonky"feathers all over, and they are both much more skittish than the other ones I had. The white one jumps and tryst to fly like an ostrich does..... this may be a wild ride!!!
