    Hey everyone. Can't really have chickens right now because I still live in the suburbs of J-Town KY. Maybe in the next year or so. I hope this question makes since. Are Silkies natural fluffy? I'm talking about the bearded Silkies. Are both rooster and hens comb and watlles smaller then the non-bearded kind? I look at silkies on youtube all the time and can't ever tell if they have been blow dried or not. How can you tell? Thanks everyone for future answers.

    They look like poodles all the time, unless they're wet of course.

    Wow. I have a toy poodle and he's the cutest little thing. And you say silkies look like that too huh? That's awesome. My poodle also looks weird when he's wet too, so I kinda understand what your saying when they get wet. I can't what to have silkies. I'm gonna get many colors and let them mix the colors up. I just saw a black & white silkie rooster not too long ago. It was very beautiful & cute.

    Get chicken diapers, and you can keep Silkies in the house! You might have to try a few until you find one that enjoys being inside.
