    We ordered two Silkie chicks at a feed store that had an order coming in, I was so excited! I wanted a buff one and my daughter wanted a white! Well they all got lost in the mail and were suposed to have come in yesterday but didn't till today. [​IMG] My little buff had already passed, [​IMG] the little white one looked bad when we picked it up but now is doing well and thriving! We wanted to get a few friends for it now named "Q-Tip"! They had some Bantams at the Tractor Supply these are the two we picked out, any ideas? The black ones feathers seem to curl up and it has feathers on the feet? Frizzel? The tan and black one just has feathers on its feet? Of course we had to add a picture of our little trooper Q-Tip! Is this a bearded one? This is our first Silkie! She (we hope) is sooo sweet and likes to be held!

    Thanks For Your Help,

    Adrianna
