    So I bought two silkies at the same time both looked healthy and still do but I have one problem one of them is not even half the size of the other one acutally there is a huge size difference I have had them about 2 months now and I swear one is a just a fun size lol I baby it so much and it gets extra attention I am just curious if this is normal at all or do I have a defective chick???

    I don't have a lot of experience with silkies, but I have two and the rooster is twice as big as the hen. Maybe you have a really healthy rooster and a little hen. I'm just guessing though.
