    I hatched her from an egg I purchased off Ebay. I had two frizzle silkies and then this type... is it supposed to be smooth feathers??... I thought all silkies has the downy looking feathers. She does have 5 toes and black skin.
    She is Very Sweet!

    This is a smooth feathered silkie, a mix. Some people use this type to breed to frizzles to get an up and coming breed, the "Sizzle" SSHHHHHHSHS!
