    Silkies are a very popular breed - just know that they can be impossible to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs. Someone who tries to sell you young chicks as definite pullets, etc. is banking on the fact that you don't know this. But, you do now, so you are forewarned
