This is my daughter's new silkie chick, named mellow. She is 4 days old. (I have no idea if she is a she, we just say it is) She is not a show quality chick, but to us...she is a heart melter. Very funny, soft and fluffy.
You might be able to tell her gender as of today --don't wait!--
by holding one of her wings out. If you see her wing feather tips are all in a line, she's a boy,
if they're clearly uneven lengths, she's a girl. It might be a day too late for this to work,
don't know, but if you don't find out now, it could be several months
