    These are all between 12 & 16 wks old, Some are black skinned, some yellow. There are those that are fully booted and some half leg booted,also some bearded. Some also have long feathers on the top of there heads. some also appear to have walnut cones. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    All look like mixes. The one roo however looks like a mottled d'uccle. All are very pretty.

    Looks like your first is an EE mixed with a silkie, then you have polish/silkie mixes, other silkie mixes

    Interesting as i don't keep silkies or any blue/green egg laying hens. These have all hatched from our own eggs.
    We were told our girls are millefleur , lemon cuckoo, golden partridge, and a lavender pekins and we only had the 1 cockerel. So if i'm looking to sell on the chicks do i need to refer to them as silkie mix?[​IMG] the daddy

    Your rooster is a silkie mix (his comb and crest give it away) and at least one of your hens also carry a silkie gene for some of the offspring to have came off silkie feathered.
