    They are about 2 months old and they seem to be a mix of silkie and some other breed.
    Thanks in advance :)

    One male and two female. Silkie Mixes. No tell with any degree of certainty what else they are mixed with.

    Can you tell me which one is the male? I thought it maybe was the white one (without the red spots around his face)

    That's what I see, also.

    the red comb and wattles is male. The others look female.

    Silkie mixes. Mixed with what...hard to say. The silkie features are so dominant they mask other breeds a lot. I could see maybe bantam Cochin there.

    Momma looks like a mix herself.
