    I'm pretty positive the two white ones are silkie crosses, the brown/multi colored one I'm not sure of nor the black/grey one... We had a broody hen so I placed an add on CL for a rooster, the kind women who gave us the roo also donated fertile eggs for our hen...these four are the result. I know the pic isnt the greatest but Momma will call them away if I get any closer... :)

    All 4 are part silkie, the fuzzy(Silkied) ones are likely pure Silkie, as the silkie gene is recessive. Both parents have to have and/or carry the gene for the chicks to show it

    Rooster. He has a lot of his pointed saddle(back) and hackle(neck) feathers in. That is also a rooster coloration, hens wont look like that.

    Not sure on breed, could be a Rock or Welsummer. Its hard to tell with the coloration because they look similar
