    thank for the reply i also heard that it is impossible to breed out of silkies and u will always get some with the horns,though they arnt desireable they sure do complement those cute little fluffy faces

    I am not sure about that, and I don't want to give you wrong information. And if you aren't showing or breeding for show stock, don't let it worry you at all.

    Here is a start. Also, if you join the club, there are pages and pages of photos of the different body parts.

    Just a suggestion,,, if the other won't accept a chick and you still have eggs hatching in the incubator,,, why not try putting an egg that's close to hatch under her,, she should get used to hearing it's peeping before it hatches and will probably accept it more readily..........just a thought...... I have heard of people letting broodies hatch for them the last 3 days,,, the sucess rate can be higher
