What breed are these guys??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
We rescued 15 baby chicks. We think they are about 4 wks old now. Thought they were leghorns but all of the combs coming in on roosters are black, so now I'm thinking Silkies?? I am COMPLETELY new to chicken raising, so thank you in advance!.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! They look like silkies to me but please do pop by the what breed gender section where I'm sure you will get further advice. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

That was so nice of you to rescue so many chicks, is this your first time keeping chickens?

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow

 

I agree with Yorkshire Coop in that they do look like Silkies. Definitely follow the link provided by Yorkshire Coop to our What Breed and Gender section for more help. 

 

They are adorable! Enjoy all your rescues and we do welcome you to our flock! :-)

They do seem to be silkies, are all of them white?
