    It's a silkie-something mix. i hatched eggs last year, supposed to have been all silkies. But one ended up with smooth feathers. i've always wondered if a stray rooster snuck into the pen that person gathered her eggs from, or if it was just a strange fluke.

    I agree - but she is very pretty and regal looking. I really like her.

    Definitely a Silkie Cross, probably with a Bantam Cochin.

    I'd go with the silkie/cochin mix. But, she is BEAUTIFUL!!
