Not this early.   You don't know if the combs will be more silkie-ish  or   sebright-ish.   How many toes on them  and feathered feet?    I thought the colors would be more interesting.  Still they could change a lot when they feather out fully.

They have 5 toes and they are feathered too. I thought so too but I think more colors may come out as they get older! Wishful thinking!

Unfortunately the people I got them from weren't taking care of them properly. I kinda took them in as a rescue. They have mites pretty bad if you have any suggestions on the best way to naturally get rid of them, I would appreciate it a lot.

They're too young to sex accurately. As for the mites, some people have success using diatamaceous earth, but I never had. The best mite treatment is probably Sevin dust, but that isn't natural.

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