Here are some of my 21 Silkies. They are all 3 months old only. They are also the only reason why I spent another $500 building a huge sheltered enclosure for winter. They better lay me some eggs soon! . I haven't learned how to distinguish the males from females, and it won't be clear for another 2 months I think. Some of them have very large distinct combs, so I can guess they are male, but until they start crowing, I won't know for sure. Buff Silkie Partridge Silkie Buff and Partridge. They are extremely cute now, and they're not even full grown yet. I find their top knots very appealing. They look miserable when they are wet.. Bearded Black None of my silkies have names yet, as they haven't really shown their personalities strongly. Partridge Blue As this picture shows, some of my silkies have better top knots than others. My only Splash silkie. Bearded. So cute, I hope its a female. I hope all of you Silkie lovers will add some pics of your own little furballs, so we can all ogle together.
