Hiya!

Wondering...is this silky a bantam? She is twice the size of our other bantams (including another silky bantam) but is only a few weeks older.

They're getting along very well, happy with how they've sorted themselves out! Wish they'd stop being so scared of me though...

Thanks!

:)

t-tpoultry you are incorrect

if you read the australian poultry standards there ARE bantam silkies with appropriate weights being given.

bantam chick your white silkie is probably a standard sized silkie, although growth rates of bird vary.
