This little chick is a hodgepodge of breeds, with Silkie ancestry on both sides.
(Taken at six days old. Just to give you an idea of what he looks like overall.)
I noticed something freaky was going on with its feathers and I was kinda worried until I realized they looked an awful lot like silkie wing feathers. But I haven't owned many so I'm not one hundred percent certain on that.
(Taken at eight days old.)
(Today, thirteen days old.)
More importantly, it's growing more wing feathers on its shoulders that I would expect to be silkie-like but they don't look very fluffy to me.
Thoughts? Is he going to be a variegated fluff ball? Do I just have to wait?
