    I have these two Silkies. I am wondering why every silkie I see on the internet has a black beak, mine are a natural color. Does this mean anything I should know about?

    Do you think the are male or female?

    I don't have silkies, but those don't look like Silkies to me.

    Sultans have 5 toes and beards. I can see feathered feet, so that's good. But they don't look bearded to me and I can't see toe-numbers. I think that most hatchery Houdans are mottled. Where did you get them?

    They do have five toes and blasck skin. We purchased them from a local feed store. I am guessing the two smaller ones are EE but these I don't think will ever become the fuzzy/puffy little silkies I was hoping for!

    Quote:The birds pictured do not have black skin. With 5 toes and feathered feet, crests and that build, those are sultans.
