    Oh really? The lady I got them from had guessed the buff to be a pullet! I guess we'll see, I'm keeping him anyway.

    Wait 4 more weeks and check back in with new pics. Way too early to sex a Silkie.

    That's what I figured, I just wanted to see what people would say now, and then update the pics from time to time. The buff so far is the much more confident/docile of the two, whereas the splash is extremely vocal/personable.

    I didn't know that silkies could...well...achieve lift. XD They were all over my furniture for a while there, because they decided they wanted to be held. >_> I've never had birds this friendly!

    I have a question? Is the first chick a very smutty buff? Or a buff partridge? The reason I ask, is I have two the same, and I was told they were buff partridge? Thanks!
