    Yep they are. I have the smaller breeds in the setup area we had for turkeys etc. So they don't get trampled by the big chicks. We have quite a few silkies with all the same coloring. There is some like yours that have the 5 toes but clean legs.

    The one before the duck looks like a silver laced wyandotte maybe?

    Don't worry everybody, most of the 16 lbs was box--they were in one of those giant boxes for 100 birds, but one compartment was empty. I'm guessing I got 75ish birds total--2 are ducks. 25 were specifically-ordered breeds (ordered 20, they sent a couple extras, I think).

    I have to wait until my daughter takes a nap to know what's there, and how many. Off the bat there are at least 4 silkies, some Welsummer (they look just like the ordered Welsummer anyhow), EEs, a handful of bantams, maybe some Delaware, maybe a Spitzhauben, one Polish... hmm... can't remember any others... couple barred birds....

    HAHA I didn't get any of those turken freaks!

    I'm a bit bummed that I don't see any Houdan--Cackle has excellent Houdans according to the Houdan thread (or at least they did have one of the best breeder flocks a couple years ago).
