I hear the term vaulted skull but I have know idea what it means. It is supposed to make silkie more susceptible to injury by pecking, I have heard. Do all silkies have vaulted skulls? If not, how do you tell if one does?
No, not all silkies have them. How you can tell is fairly simple. When they are born is the easiest. If it has one, there will be a noticeable bump on its head, otherwise it will be like any other chick with a smooth head.
