Silkie chickens -- freaks of nature

Here's a new photo of our silkie -- its feet are getting more feathery every day! I'm thinking I'll give him a trim as soon as his feathers are done growing so he can walk better. People also recommend trimming silkies around their eyes.

He's 14 weeks old and still is indoors most of the time.  He's so friendly and mellow it's like having a pet llama or something. We think of him as a "he" but there's no crowing yet, so fingers crossed that we've got a female.

Update: today I posted photos of this guy on, and the consensus is that he's a male....
