    Need a closer pic. How many toes? Could very well be a silkie cross.

    Only four and yellow legs...No feathering on feet and very tight close feathers...Except for that crazy part on her head...

    Hard tellin. She likely a mix or mix of mixes. If there is Swedish Flower in her its less than 50% I'd say, as small as she is and no speckling.

    Your guess is as good as mine....I cant see Silkie though at all as my friend keeps saying....He raised them , but has many types of Bantams and Standard breeds...I guess she is an oops for sure...

    Thanks....

    Most of the typical Silkie traits you are looking for a lost in the first generation cross. The silkie feathering goes. And sometimes the black skin and fifth toe goes. But the leg feathering almost always stays.

    That I understand....The bugger who sold her to me as an actual toss in...Claims a pure Silkie cross...I know this much....No Silkie in her...lol.....I thought possibly a Polish with the parted feathers on her head..??He has many rare Breeds...I know he bragged about his Flower hens...He had no Rooster at that time....I never seen a Polish at his place though...
    She is a sweet little pullet regardless of what she is...?
    I just want to see what others thought, along with my own thoughts....????

    Thanks!
