What type of chicken is this

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 




So I think its a roo but someone on the silkie thread said he might not be a silkie. It has me questioning now. He dosn't have as fine of feathering. I got him at a few days old and saw the flock he was supposidly from that where silkies fine feathers and all but the chick i got with him is I believe a polish cross not a silkie. So any ideas what this guy may be?

He appears to be a silky crossbred.

My guess would be a Silkie/Polish cross...the crest looks very Polish like in shape rather than the mohawk (male) or pompom (female) of the Silkie.

Agreed

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

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
