    I do not know what you paid, and they are too young to tell quality, except to say that none have vaulted skulls. I would express displeasure as the one with yellow legs is CERTAINLY not pure silke, and for the sake of the sellers reputation, she should be willing to exchange that chick or at the very least, provide a pure silkie chick at half the cost.

    by the way she was a private seller...and assured me they where pure....my daughter paid 5$ a chick for the little fluffs.....she has been waiting a year to find a breeder in our area....now she is very upset [​IMG] and I am furious that she will not exchange or refund [​IMG]

    I guess I will not purchase 2 gray silkies from her when her next batch hatches

    its okay....I have contacted a breeder 6 hours from me and he may send me some fertilized eggs...he usually only sells live chicks...I had to drive down there to pick up my day olds last time.....I guess he is taking pity on me cause i told him my story....he is a reputable breeder....and said if he has any eggs left at the end of march he will sell me some...... [​IMG]

    now lest hope he has some left
