    Directly above the fifth toe usually starts growing around one year old give or take a few month, depends on the growth and maturity rate

    Quote:Don't be afraid silkies developed very slow and usually aren't aggressive alot of times if you don't keep them clipped down after they grow 2 or 3 inches they sometimes break them off to the skin this will take 2 to 3 maybe 4 years to grow this length I have a cochinthat has never had his clipped down but only rounded and his is only 1 inch long and he's 3 years old so it depends on the rooster
