Hi folks, i just got these two silkies, wondered what colors they will be? Thanks!
White and partridge.
Who has Pure SQ White Silkies,Beared.And Pictures of them.Please let me see yours .Thanks so much,Sandra
here are todays pics, they are really amazing..got them from Okcarla and they are snuggles all the time
had them with a divider separating them from the older ones, went in about an hour later and somehow they had gotten in with the bigger ones.... watched them a bit and went ahead and separated them again just to be safe
I have found that my silkies tend to get along with different ages without much of the picking on. Eveyone just looks at each other like oh your new. Still I'd keep the babies separate for a while.
I wouldn't keep them seperated I would put them in right away and watch them to make sure they don't pick at each other. Usually the silkies are a lot tamer with new cage mates and stay seperated from the new ones on one side while the others are on their side. Then they start to slowly mingle. Keep a red light on them in the brooder. That will reduce the urge to peck also just in case they feel the need.
The one looks like it will be either grey or blue partridge, not regular partridge. If the silkies are not being pecked on, they will be happier with the others--just give them a place where they can hide if they need or want to (like a tunnel or something with a small opening that they can get in, but not the larger birds.
