    I received some chicks from someone, I know the littlest is a Silkie - five toes :)

    It's the three shades of grey - a bigger almost white, a mid tone and one is darker grey.

    I would suggest creating your own thread because going back and forth to answer different questions from different people can get confusing. Also post pictures of the comb and side when you do create a thread, he/she could also be too young to be properly sexed yet.

    I agree with Veer, it's best to create your own thread. Based on what you have so far, I can't tell breed or sex. You might want to wait until the chick is older, and refer to the photo guidelines for this section (a thread in a box at the top of the forum near the "new post" button) for when you take the pics.

    I don't think they are Andalusians. They just don't look quite right to me, and they're missing the white earlobes, although they are still young. Knowing what type of comb they have would help.

    The white earlobes develop with time, as the bird gets closer to maturity, the earlobes start to turn white.

    x2, at that age my Blue Andalusian still had pinkish earlobes. Now at about 3 months of age she still has pink earlobes but they are slowly turning whiter.
