So happy to finally join! Now I need help trying to figure out this breed EEK!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I bought this day old chick ( amongst others) and was told it was a silkie.

So far the feathers coming in are quite smooth.

Any ideas to the breed?

The other chicks are Blue Laced Red Wyandottes ( for scale)

The first photo is 1 week old.

I think they are about 6 weeks old.

Thank you in advance

:o)

Welcome to BYC :frow Glad you joined us! It does look like a Silkie in the first pic, but later on I'm starting to think Polish. Could be a cross-breed though, your best bet would be to post in the Breed/Gender section/
