Where did those come from? Mystery chick

One of my cochin/EE mixes has ear tufts? Boy or girl ?

post #2 of 3

That chick does not have ear tufts. Those are muffs and a crest. It's possible that the parents are mixes. Looks like a pullet at this point, but it's a little young to tell.

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

Its a (dad) Silkie-ameraucana-cochin+ (mom)bantam cochin mix.none of the others I hatched from them had the fluff sticking out like that and I have hatched a bunch of them.I was thinking girl too, I have a few from the same bunch that have obvious combs. They are around 7-8 weeks old.
All my cochin mixes tend to end up with crests. So that wasn't a surprise.
Like this lovely thing



and these guys( the white ones Scream boy when they have their heads up but they are Japanese/sebright crosses)
