Those hard feathers sort of indicate that they are probably silky crosses. I don't know where TSC is getting their chicks this year, but the silky chicks up here in NJ have been poor quality at best and crossbreds at worst.
I just responded to the third thread today in reference to cross bred silkies. What did they all have in common? They all came from TSC.
