    Went to the feed store on Friday for supplies and of course came home with a box of chicks. They had just received their shipment and there I was when the box of mixed Bantams was opened. How can anyone resist?

    One is a Silkie, another I think is a Silkie mix as it has similar feathering and 5 toes. Its legs are slate colored and its beak is light. The others I am not sure about either. d'uccle's or something else? This is so much fun trying to figure out what breeds I may have. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks hdowden. I do like the d'uccles and I was hoping that is what they were. I have 4 others that look like the one on the right in the first photo and then I have one which is even a lighter color. The mixed Silkie chick has the same amount of feathering under it's chin as the Silkie. It sure is a sweet little thing.
