    This is our first Silkie, Wishes, 20180403_202352.jpg and I am completely uninitiated. He or she is 4 weeks and 2 days old. His/her feathers are looking pretty rag-tag, lol, and I'm thinking it is a frizzle. What do you say?

    Also, though I'm pretty certain it is much too early to venture a guess at gender, if anyone wants to, that would be fun, too!

    Aside from looking up their vent, silkies are almost impossible to sex until they crow or lay an egg.
