    I have seen a post similar to this but not really active lately. I would like to see pictures of bearded vs non bearded. I got a batch of silkie chicks and really hope they are bearded.

    Often with bearded chicks you can tell from birth if they have a beard. They will often have the puff on their cheeks from day one!
    Pics would be helpful!
    I feel like bearded silkies are more common than non-bearded anyway too.

    Above are each of their pictures. So can anyone help me identify if these babies are bearded or not. Or any idea on how they will look when they grow
