Hello, I have 3 Silkie Chicks that are about 2-3weeks old. One of them isn't like the others though Its feathers flip up real bad like a frizzle. Do you think they might have sent me one that wasn't the same as the rest or is something wrong with this chicken. It has a lot of spots where there is no feathers, But it seems very happy.Thanks, Justin.

Well, and I am certainly not a Silkie expert, but I am of the understanding that is one of the absolute most basic traits of a Silkie and it is impossible to have one without black skin. They also have black meat and bones if I am not mistaken?

Well, that's a frizzle. Whether it has any silkie in it close, probably not, maybe. Even some of mine that I know are sizzles, have some pink toes. but mostly black.

Even Gin and Whiskey are dark footed. And they're the lightest of the group.

Frizzles and sizzles are awesome birds, they're just not silkies.

I love my sizzle fuzzies.
