    Sorry if the picture doesn't turn correctly. I just bought this chick along with some others that are definitely Silkies but I'm not sure on this one. Is it a mix?

    Thank you. This is the only one out of the 8 I have that looks like this. I have blues and blacks and then this one lol. One of the blacks is missing the "poof" on its head. Is that something that some Silkies lack?

    I don't no much about silkies but I'm pretty sure they are suppose to have the puff, maybe they are mixes.

    They should have a crest (puff or pouf whatever you want to call it.) If not they are either mixed or typical poor hatchery stock

    The one pictured is beautiful, looks like maybe a partridge color. It's hard to turn my head to see it at that angle. Is it possible to rotate the picture so it is correct side up. If you have photo program it could work.
