    Not this early. You don't know if the combs will be more silkie-ish or sebright-ish. How many toes on them and feathered feet? I thought the colors would be more interesting. Still they could change a lot when they feather out fully.

    They have 5 toes and they are feathered too. I thought so too but I think more colors may come out as they get older! Wishful thinking!

    Unfortunately the people I got them from weren't taking care of them properly. I kinda took them in as a rescue. They have mites pretty bad if you have any suggestions on the best way to naturally get rid of them, I would appreciate it a lot.

    They're too young to sex accurately. As for the mites, some people have success using diatamaceous earth, but I never had. The best mite treatment is probably Sevin dust, but that isn't natural.
