In the US, we have bantam silkies. Other countries have LF silkies. Someone was saying that they thought maybe there were some LF silkies here but I never saw anything on it. So I assume we still just have bantam. The hens get to be about 2 lbs. from what I have read in the past. I never weighed mine.

The US standard for silkies is
Cocks are 36 oz
Hens and cockerels are 32 oz
Pullets are 28 oz
