    Hey everyone i got some silkies and guineas about a month ago and I took them from really bad situation irst off the guineas was in a trap for like a racoon or cat trap maybe not really for sure it was pitaful and then i seen the silkies they was in a 3'x3'x3' pen if that is what yo can call it with about 4 other sets of chickens so a total of about 12 chickens in this pen it was awful they was the smallest and didnt look very good but i had to save them so i did now they have almost doubled in size since the month i have had them and there eathers have really begin to inprove quite abit but anyways when i got these the guy told me that all 3 of the hens 1 guinea and 2 silkie hens were laying well ever since i have got them one one silkie is laying and she just started maybe a week and hal ago or maybe 2 and i wasnt for sure which one it was because i seen white fetahers in the box so i thought it was her but then i seen the balck in the box and when she got out there was an egg so i guess it must be her now i am only getting an egg every other day so im pretty sure only one i laying and only one box is being layed in but anyways enough of that I was wondering some on you all on here would be able to tell me about how old they are and if they are pure or not

    does the first silkie have yellow feet or black? all the others look pure silkies, is the first has black feet then its a pure.

    The guinne well, is the darker one smaller than the lighter one?

    Good for you for saving these babies! What a terrible life they would have had without you. They all are very cute [​IMG]

    I'm so sorry hun I am rushing through trying to help you with 2 screaming kids so I didnt read your whole 1st post. I see now you saved these babies and was not asking for quality. I am so sorry! They are beautiful and the black roo looks anywhere from about 1 year on the white hen looks young maybe 10 months or younger. The white roo also looks around 1 year and the black hen looks about 10 months also.
