    this hatched from an egg that was sent accidently with another order and i was told that i should be a silkie which is what i though but the feathering is normal feathers its almsot 3 weeks i think i was also wondering if it could be sexed, it was the only silkie with 4 sumatras that hatched and out of all of them this one had the second tail feathers develop and does wing feather sexing work with most breeds?

    That is not a pure silkie. It may be a mix. How many toes does it have? Wing sexing isn't accurate unless you use a fast feathering over slow feathering bird.
