    He was yellow when we got him. Then he got white. Sometimes when he lifts his wings you can see some black under it. Here are some pictures:

    The black on his head is probably from him wandering in the garage.

    That is a little Silke. Very cute. I might suggest that you go out to a store that sells chiken supplies and get a waterer that is designed for chickens so it can not spill its water thus not making a mess so often.

    Silkies are very hard to tell when they are young. Some people have to wait till they either lay an egg if a girls or crow if a boy.

    Well that all depends on where you live. I am in Indiana and we have a lot of stores in my state.

    aw, hows this one doing alone? I am thinking of getting a sliky chick myself...but if the chick seems lonley i'l get another.


    If you ever decide to get ur chicken a friend, be careful..some chickens don't like when new chickens join there flock [​IMG]

    it happened to me...my old hen hated the new chicks. hahaha
