    Just wondering the breed. Silkie mix, but what will his feathers look like when he's older? The others have actual feathers and his are weird.

    The gene for silkie feathering is recessive, so likely will have normal feathers. If one parent was Frizzle, then this chick could be frizzled.

    My other silkie mixes have feathers coming in that look like typical wing feathers. I think the lady that had the parents had a frizzle as well so maybe that's what this is. She lets all of her chickens free range so there was no way of knowing what I was gonna get.
