    Because I think I have one! He's the same age as everyone else but less than half the size! Ill get pics tomorrow!
    In case youre wondering, yes, he's a cross, but he has every characteristic of a silkie, and a nice one at that!

    Silkies are larger bantams, and if it's a cross, it's just smaller. Silkie traits, 5 toes, black skin, ect, are pretty dominant. I have a cochin silkie mix that won BV that my friend put in as a joke. There are mini silkies just as much as there are teacup chihuahuas. Bet it's a cutie though!

    Quote:Silkies should only be around 2 lbs and are quite light (small)..

  6. Yes, I have a silkie dwarf. She's tiny. Less than half the size of the other girls. She has only laid 2 eggs in her life. Apparently they pop up form time to time.

    http://www.silkiesofsummertown.com/id30.html If you look there, Robin also had a dwarf.
