    I have 25 Silkies brooding in the basement and they are possibly the quietest chicks I have ever heard--or, in this case, not heard. They make very gentle peeping sounds. They are so quiet I am worried that there is something wrong and that they are all dying and therefore too weak to make noise [​IMG] Has anyone else noticed that Silkies, especially as chicks, are extremely quiet? Does this continue into their adult years?
