    Does anyone have pics of three month olds? I feel like my girls (and Roobyn) are skinny. They are active, they free range for many ours during the day, when in the run, they chase the 1.5 month olds. They devour treats and seem to like the broilers' feed more than their own. They do seem hungry all the time but their food is available 24/7. Their behavior seems healthy and happy. They just seem skinny to me.
  2. Silkies do go through a gawky stage we call "the uglies." As long as they are eating normally and aren't being starved by the other birds, they they are probably developing normally.
