    I got my first Silkie today!![​IMG] Was wondering if anyone could tell me what color it might be when it matures and also maybe how to tell the gender on Silkie chicks?This is my first time with this breed so I am very excited and cant wait to experience it. Also any tips or tricks you can offer would be appreciated! I really want it to be lovable and friendly!

    Thanks!!

    looks like a partridge you have to wait a couple of months for sex silkies are a harder breed to sex. As for making it friendly, just hold and pet it alot.
