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.
I was told that silkies were non bantam, just small. Aren't there bearded and non-bearded silkies too?
Yes there are bearded and non-bearded.
it mater what counntry you live in
The US standard for silkies is
Cocks are 36 oz
Hens and cockerels are 32 oz
Pullets are 28 oz
I believe in Australia you have both large fowl and bantam silkies. Your bantams are smaller than ours; your large fowl larger than our bantams. Note that US silkies are one of the larger bantam breeds.
