    I asked for three silkie bantams from townline but I am not sure these are.. based on other people pictures.. so i looked at my receipt and of course it says straight run bantams..

    Any help would be appreciated, along with sexes if anyone can tell [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Yep, they look like mine. Cute!

    Chickenforever, how are you determining the last one looks like a girl? I have 2 5 week old silkies I'm trying to guess gender on...here's a pic, or you can check out my thread "Gender Game Time; Second Generation." Any ideas?

    Check out the number of toes and the overall skin color. Just keep in mind,the better the quality (breeder) the better the fuzz(feathering)....lol.

    They are very pretty! Look like silkies to me :)
     
  9. defiantely silkies, they are getting in the silkie feathers and no "staright" barbed feathers like normal chicks do.

    dark skin, feathered feet, 4/5 or 5/5 toes. silkies !!!! [​IMG]
