    I am not sure if this chick has a beard or not. It is hard to tell on silkies. I look at it and go "yes" then I look at it again and go "no I don't think you have the Santa beard".

    Here is a picture :)

    I am aware that there is a silkie tread here on the forum, but I would feel bad to just go and ask this question out of the blue so that is why I am posting this question here. I hope this is OK.

    It looks like a bearded Silkie chick to me.

    Thank you!
    I looked at bearded and non bearded and there is a difference.

    The reason I was not sure is because the gray silkie I have has a huge "beard" this little white sikie's beard is short.
    I should not compare the two. I only get myself confused.

    Thank you all very much!
