    I just received my order of silkies from Cackle Hatchery. Does anyone know how good the quality is from this hatchery? I tried to find a local breeder, but had no luck, so gave in and ordered from Cackle. Also, it doesn't specify whether they are bearded or non-bearded and some appear to have heavier feathering on their feet than the others. Is thi any indication of how they will mature? Will the feathering grow in the same or will the ones with heavier feathering always be fluffier? Sorry, I'm new to this, and just interested in how these guys are going to turn out.

    I would say give them some time to mature and it will become clearer exactly what you've got. But, I also think there will be small amount of variation on the newborns that will even out over time.
