    For the times I go into TSC! [​IMG]
    I have been looking for BJG and silkie chicks FOREVERRRRR.
    and just in case TSC has them (really doubt they will EVER have these breeds but best be ready!)
    Ive noticed that alot of the TSC have NO idea what kind of chicks they have nor do they care..
    (I think I need to take up a job there [​IMG])

    How can I be sure that it is a BJG or a silkie?
    Ive looked at pictures of each but still kinda confused.

    Has anyone ever seen these breeds at TSC?

    Silkies will have black skin, 5 toes.and a flatish comb. Most will have vaulted skulls. If their wing feathers are feathering out already they will look different than normal feathers. Good Luck!
