    Any idea about the other 2? Maybe silkie Cochin mix for the bigger one but I have no idea about the little one.

    I think he's just a smooth feathered Silkie. It's considered a defect, but it does happen.

    I think it's a little to early to tell about the genders.

    Wow, Pele, I didn't know that silkies could be smooth feathered! Amazing!
