I'm a chick newbie getting bantam peeps from Meyer on April 7 or 8, but I want to add a couple of bantam silkies since Meyer is sold out. Our local Tractor Supply Store is getting mixed bantams from Mt. Healthy on April 6, so I'm guessing they'll be close enough in age to put them in the same brooder. My question: when I peer into the bin of adorable bantam peepers, how can I tell for certain which are silkies? I've heard people talk about counting toes or checking skin color, but I didn't know if these characteristics are unique to silkies! The Mt. Healthy assortment should include both black and white silkies, if that helps. Thanks!
