Ok, so I had silkies as a kid and have had birds for 25 years of my life. I recently hatched out the cutest silkies babies from some eggs that were shipped to me. I love them to death but the other day I saw some silkie chicks for sale that look nothing like my babies. Mine have the dark skin but they have naked necks. The chicks I saw were little balls of fluff. the parents didn't look cross bred so it makes me wonder. Why do my babies have naked necks and these didn't. I saw pictures of my eggs parents and they looked great. My chicks all have naked necks. Their chicks all were fluff balls. It's not a nutrition thing. My birds are feed the best and both sets of these chicks were born that way.
