    I've got a question for you silkie experts....do some silkie chicks have bigger poofs on their heads than others? I've got some just a couple days older than these and it doesn't seem like they have as much poof. I'll have to get some new pictures and post them so you all can see them.

    Yes, mine never had poofs on there heads. I guess it just really depends on the parents and there generation and everything, mine are purbred and never had little poofs on there head. I remember there was some word for there bone structure on there head that made that little poof on there head i cant remember what its called.

    Hope you have good hatch. That is definitely a black silkie not blue.
