    Could this one have some silkie feathering? I know it doesnt have feathered legs, but can it have the feathers?

    Both look to have normal, regular feathering to me.

    Very cute by the way!!!!

    You can tell by their wing feathers. If it is a frizzle the ends will curl up in first few days!
    and silkies will not have all the wing feathers like yours.
    I do love my turkens too.
    Cute birds....

    My frizzle has way more curl than that at a younger age, so I vote no on frizzle. I don't think the other is silkie either

    OH MY!!! That color!!!! They are gorgeous!!! I have had a few chickens with normal feathers that started out looking a bit "kinky" like that and confused me.
