    I'm pretty sue that my 3 week old silkies are pet quality but I'm interested to know what to look for next time. I'll post pics of the three I have now so someone can hopefully tell me what should be different. TIA

    I am new to chickens in general and have 2 Silkies in my mixed flock. I cannot give advice on what to look for, or the quality of your current Silkies.

    I can say though, that it took a good 5 weeks for them to start fluffing out all over! I thought they looked scraggly and bedraggled for a long while. They filled out nicely though!

    The first pic is from yesterday (excuse neighbor's junk in background) at around 9-10 weeks old. The second pic is that same Silkies at 3 weeks-ish.
