    Has anyone ever ordered white Silkie chicks from My Pet Chicken? How did they turn out when grown?

    I ordered one white silkie with my order of 7 assorted breeds. They are only 3 days old now. The white silkie is probaby my most lively one. She goes from the feeder to the waterer and back again and does lots of funny things. I was afraid, since she is the only bantam, that she would get picked on, but I'm happy to see it looks like she'll be able to hold her own.

    I did order another silkie (buff) from MPC and she didn't make it. She was very lethargic from the get go and never pulled through.
