    Do colors or genders of silkies determine different features and I just confused? I have (2) red, (2) black & (2) white chicks that are approx 6 weeks old.
    My (2) white are my smallest chicks and they have hardly NO hair/combs on top of their heads, pretty much flat, they are pretty skittish and hide under anybody that will hold still.
    My (2) blacks are really big & fluffy, and they have a little bit of "hair" sticking up on top. They are not as skittish as the whites but not as brave as my reds. They kinda just look like fluffy crows [​IMG]
    My (2) reds are really tall and they both have these purpley/gray bumpy looking things growing where their noses stop & feathers start. And one of them stands up to me when I come around, not mean, they are really my favorites!

    Is there any indications of what I may have here? I forgot my camera today but can post some pics tomorrow...Thanks!
