    Hey all! Little Mama is growing!! These feathers are coming in, and I was wondering what you all think. Is this what normal silkie feathering looks like (she is from Tsc so she is just [​IMG]

    hatchery quality). And are the feathers indicative of her adult color?

    Thanks!

    Looks like she\he will be white! I had some TSC silkies, they all looked just like that and were white.

    A white silkie, for sure. It probably won't have much of a "poof" on the head, like they really should. The wing feathers should look fairly shredded, too.

    100 % correct. Just like my TSC silkies.

    The only one I have is from a month or so ago, I actually traded them to a friend a few weeks ago. Him & his wife were really wanting them.
    They were sweet little birds, very calm and friendly. They had just poofed out really good a week or 2 before trading them.
