Those are my new silkies. Can anyone tell me quality and color of these cute babies???
they look great so far. Count toes. Check to make sure there is feathering on their feet. As they get older you will be able to check combs on males to make sure they aren't abnormal etc. Very cute. Congrats on your hatch
Thank you. They all have 5 toes with great feathering on the 2 outer toes.
Is the second one a buff or a patridge? And does she have a vaulted skull? Is this a good or bad thing? Sorry .....I am new to silkies.
It looks like a buff to me. I have a picture on my website (www.chaneyfamilyfarm.webs.com) of a partridge chick and I think they look like chipmunks It's hard to say about the vaulted skull. It's not a good or bad thing either way, just a matter of preference like bearded and non bearded. Some people prefer one over the other, but I've heard it both ways. Either way your chicks are super cute.
I just checked your website. You silkies are gorgeous!!!!!!!
Thank you for all your help.
Any idea on the colors of the other ones?
Thank you. We actually have more, I just haven't been able to get good pictures of them yet. In your bottom picture, it looks like the one on the far right is blue and the two on the left are black.
