    So I bought these from a breeder who said that one of these was a silkie and other was a silkie mix. I'm new to the whole chicken thing so I'm extremely gullible. After some research, I'm thinking more and more that they are not silkies. They both have feathered legs but have light skin and 4 toes. I also got a few others which are obviously silkies after a week of development. So any help guys? [​IMG]

    look like silkie mixes, not all mixes end up with 5 toes and black skin, but your two do have the right leg color of a silkie

    I just looked it up and they do look like pekins/cochins! Guess I just got to wait and see. They're actually growing slower than my full breed silkies.
