    I got a bantam mix and thought I ended up with all silkies, but I'm not sure on this one. It's always been a bit smaller and although it has a few small feathers on her legs, she doesn't have the booties the other silkies have. She is 4 weeks old. Whatcha think?

    It's a partridge Silkie. If you ordered it from a hatchery, that would explain the lack of feathers on its legs...

    I think silkie, too. She has the right color beak. Are her legs black and does she have five toes?

    Thanks :) I thought she was - does have the five toes, but she just didn't have the fluffy booties that the two blacks have yet and she has always been smaller. It looks like they are slowly Coming in though :)
