    These are our first chickens and we were told from the last we got them from that they were bantam Cochins...however a couple people have told me they look like a mix. Any idea what you think they are?! The front middle solid one is supposed to be a silkie! Either way they are just family pets for our kids and they are so cute I'm just curious what we have!!
    They are about 5 weeks old.

    Your white one is a Silkie, and the rest actually look like they're most likely Cochin/Silkie crosses... cute chicks!
