    This little guy was hatched out 1 1/2 weeks ago, My little silkie Q-tip hatched him, but I am not sure if the egg belonged to her or not. Also, if you could tell me what color you think he/she is.

    Well, it's blue. That's all I know. Looks rather Cochin-like. Does it have feathered feet? Cant tell.

    Yes, it does have feathered feet. I was hoping it was blue.

    Are the feet yellow? If so, it's not a pure Silkie. They have black beak, legs & skin. They also have 5 toes. If some Silkie characteristics are showing, maybe it's 1/2. As for color, it sure looks like a blue to me. Whatever it is, it sure is cute! Looks like Q-tip is a great Mama, like all Silkies.

    Feet are yellow, has 4 toes. I don't even think it has any silkie in it...lol. She is a very good mom, it took her a few days at first. This was her first time laying eggs. She only hatched out this one little guy.

    I'd probably go with cochin.

    It also has a single comb, which is not a Silkie trait either.

    Yeah I would say blue cochin as well. It looks a lot like my blue cochin mixed babies that I have.
