    I have two bantam silkies. A black and a white. They are ten weeks old. The black one is much smaller than the white one. The white one has a fluffy ball of a head, and this black one seems to have less of a puff. Here are pictures of him/her. What do you think?:/

    Boys usually have crazier poofs than females so i'm gonna go ahead and say male.

    Lol ok. Yes, I called this a Silkie, but they called it a Bantam Silkie at the feed store where I got it from.
    I just say "Silkie" for short.

    Other countries have full sized silkies - the US has bantams
