    They look like silky crosses. I'd almost be willing to bet that they have dark skin and five toes on each foot.

    They do have dark skin, I'll have to check for sure to see how many toes. Thanks!

    Silkie mixes. I'm not sure with what, but not cochin (which is a popular mix with silkies). They'll probably make nice broody hens if you're so inclined.

    Thanks, all. We kinda think they're a Silkie-Americauna cross, but what do we know?
