    I've got these two birds that look relavant in skin color and feathering a little bit, yet I can't tell what they are. I see some silkie features, but the bottom of the white one hardly feathers on it's rear at all while the buff looking one has more fuzzy type of feathering on it's bottom plenty. They both have five toes on each foot and this little top feathering attribute about them and then the black skin obviously. They can't be full silkie I'm thinking due to at 6 weeks old I feel a silkie would have A lot more feathering puffiness about them. can the breed of these birds be resolved? And they are not from the same folks either, so that being said, if they are both mixes, I have no idea what each of the two could possibly be mixed with, nor can I even tell their gender.

    They could just be poor quality silkies. They are way too young to be able to tell gender

    Yes, the buff more so then the right. Just very poor examples of the breed. Thought they are just chicks and I am sure will make great pets
