    Best place I thought to ask..

    Running(driving [​IMG] to tsc to try to find silkies. I know to look for 5 toes, grey/green/slate(whichever u call it) and fluffy. Correct me if I'm wrong please! Also is there any way at all(longshot) to try for females only. Old wives tales, size, etc? Otherwise ill just do my bbest. Suggestions please?

    Thanks!

    Silkies should have BLACK skin, five toes and feathered legs. From what I gather, it's pretty much impossible to sex them as new chicks (unless you can vent sex).
