    ...or can you tell what they may be mixed with?

    because that's what they were sold to us as....Not that it really matters because, (1) they're pretty to look at, (2) they get along with the other chickens, (3) we aren't showing them
    Mostly just curious as to breeds . We're trying to educate ourselves.
    But, we'd like to have something to tell people that end up with the chicks; "they're Brahma (mixes)" or "we don't know what they are"

    I would say silkie cochin mix....I would also say they are too big to be a standard chicken but also too big to be a bantam...so I would say one parent was a silkie which is a bantam and the other parent and full size cohcin....by the way if you dont know already one is a rooster and one is a hen.

    They might have creme legbar in them, but those are really rare, so I think silkie and either cochin or brahma. Nice looking chickens!

    Do you not mean dark brahma as the true silver lace has not been established in the us as of yet?
