    The next one is named Big Mama (BM)
    feathered feet with 5 toes. She seemed to have had grey baby fluff and. growing white frizzy feathers. she's very active and alive.

    They should be around 5 week old now.
    any help would be appreciated. thanks ^.^

    They are probably both Silkie/Cochin crosses (often called "Sizzles"). It's too young to tell gender for sure, but Big Mama looks a little roosterish, because of the larger redder comb.

    Since they have five toes, they are probably Silkie mixes. I'm not really seeing a lot of other Silkie traits, though. Are you sure there are five toes on each foot? As for gender, Pig is a pullet, but I think Big Mama is a cockerel.

    There is still a chance. Some pullets develop their combs and wattles earlier. But, if I was to guess now, I'd say that she's a cockerel.

    Agree BM is looking like a cockerel, and they both look Cochin to me. Can you get a pic of their feet so we can see their toes?
