    Those are just normal Silkies :)

    Silkies' feathers look different because they lack the barbicels in their feathers. As a result, the feathers don't "knit" together as well, so they appear fluffy and feel very "silkie."

    That's the truth. You can post on the "Silky thread." and get the same answers

    Frizzles look like they stuck their beak in an electric outlet - sticking straight out like a porcupine.
