    I'm finally going to fulfill my dream of having silkies by getting a couple this spring, and I am wondering how big they are. How do bantam silkies compare to say, a bantam sebright?

    Silkies are a little larger than Sebrights with male Silkies running about 36 oz. and females about 32 oz., compared with 22 oz. for male Sebrights and 20 oz. for female Sebrights.
