So this little one is bred from my own flock… because at the time of breeding I had 5 roosters (now 8 not including my 13week old chick) I’m unsure of who dad or mum is… the colours just baffle me… I suspect silkie x but unsure weather that’s from mum or dad… 🤣🤣 can post newer photos if you need them as she/he has grown a bit since these were taken.

Do you want possible mum side or possible dad side… ?? I’ve got over 20 girls (all different breeds) I’m thinking if we can work out dad I can work out mum… (my boys all have their favourite girls)
I have 35 hens.

Father could've been a Silkie, or the Mother could've been the silkie. Knowing for sure is hard.

But knowing for sure is gonna be the difficult, almost impossible task to know without keeping track of who laid the egg.
