    This one has a black silkie father and I believe a bantam dark brahma mama. It has dark skin and dark legs and 5 toes.

    They’re both pullets.

    They look like pullets for now, but it's hard to see the combs (in the 6 wk pics) and Silkies can be tough to sex.

    This one has either a black frizzle cochin (I think this is father) or black silkie for father and a gray Easter egger for mama. Dark greenish legs and light skin with 4 toes.

    The two silkie crosses dont have anything for combs and waddles right now (but also early) Based on feathering like their mothers and what little I've read about silkie genetics for rooster and color of skin that these will pass on. I was thinking pullets also.

    Better pictures of the black Easter egger cross. Any ideas on gender with these pics? Mom is gray Easter egger and dad is either black silkie or black frizzle cochin. Week 7
