    Hello,

    I just inherited these adorable chickens. I was told they are bantam frizzles but they don't look like it to me. They are from the same brood. Can anyone tell me what they are?

    Thanks!

    I'm thinking they are a silkie mix, they have the feet like a silkie and their legs are covered with feathers. The black one (Chickadee - 5 yr old named her) has bright yellow and black feet. They are really sweet, Voltron (the roo) is not terribly aggressive.
