Bought these as "I don't know" chickens

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I bought 5 of these little guys as chicks hoping for 1 female and ended up with 4. I love them to death but have no clue what kind they are. They arent very big, lay tiny brown eggs and have a small poof on their heads. Any ideas...?

Looks like a mixed breed to me, probably with Silkie in it.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

That was my thought. Either that or possibly polish maybe?

I agree and it explains the small size also.

I also can't forget our two mixed breed cats, Figaro and J.J. and our American Golden...

Do they have feathered legs, 5 toes or dark skin? Those would all point to silkie. Clean legs and 4 toes would be Polish, probably.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
