    [​IMG]I am raising 18 baby chicks. These are almost 3 weeks old. I have mostly silkies but I also ordered 3 Easter Eggers and 5 mixed rare breeds. Not really sure what I have yet. I know these are NOT Silkies.

    Sumatras (either blue or black) have black skin, faces and legs, so I don't think that's what you've got.

    Yeah I was reading about the Sumatras and I'm thinking it is not one

    hatchery ones are not always right. I have come across some that don't have black face skin. But even on a well bred sumatra the body skin is not black. They have yellow feet bottoms and black legs. You can post the black one on the sumatra thread and see what they say, or wait a few weeks and watch it grow (which is always the funnest for me)

    The second one looks like a Sport White (Splash), but that could be the color from my computer screen. What type of comb do they have?
