EDIT: Pics of silkies next to other chickens would really help me out here!

Are you talking about standard or bantam BRs? Most silkies will be at least the size of bantam BRs, but not as big as the standards.

my silks are so small i can pick them up and they splay all over my hand with their little winged feets and wings out and it feels like a glove!

GOOD FOR THEM RUTHLESS WINTER DAYS!
