    silkies have feathered legs/feet and black skin, and normally 5 toes on each foot. This is not looking like a baby silkie

    these two are about 3 to 4 months old, but it shows you how the feathers look on them along with the tail. Is your little ones tail feathers looking like this (more like hair than like feathers, like it's wings look)

    its just starting to get a few fluffy tail feathers.. im pretty sure its at least half silkie..just wondering if it looked all silkie.. its alot tinyer than the other silkie chicks i had were but i dont know how old they were 2-3mo i think.
    this little one was hatched on july 24th.
    its a only a 3rd of the size of the BCM 4week olds i just bought.
