    My 4 silkie chicks are fluffing out everywhere-body, feet,wings, etc. they have 5 toes and black skin. Their heads aren't as fluffy as I thought they'd be. They will be 4 weeks old May1st.

    They are even fluffier now than in this pic taken a few days ago.

    Their crest grows in with their fledging feathers. Right now they are just little fuzballs
