Snowball could be a Silkie/Orpington cross. Unless I'm getting the wrong impression from the photos, she looks larger than the other Silkies, and that could be the reason. It's still possible she's a Cochin/Silkie mix, too. But whatever she is she is very pretty and she looks right at home with the Silkies.Hello again and thank you for the responses. The smaller chick, who appears to be a pure bred silkie has black legs and skin, five toes. The other chick in question, Snowball, has the same colored legs with five toes, feathered feet and a gray beak. I'll have to double check later this morning to see if her skin is black as well. Silkies are my favorite of all chicken breeds. I have done a lot of research lol but I always knew that Snowball was not a pure bred due to her feather texture. And after doing some research on the Buff Orpington and also viewing pics and info on an Orpington/Silkie Cross Thread, as the first person suggested she resembled an Orpington, I'm pretty convinced that may be what she is. I purchased them from a friend who lives on a farm a few hours away from here. He loves the Silkie breed as well, and sometimes the females can be hard to find. The chicks were young and I was not able to sex them, nor was he, at least that's what he told me lol but when they were little, they looked a lot alike. He said they were silkies. One would be a white silkie, the other a buff silkie. But within a few weeks Snowball's feathers began to come in and they were not the standard fluffy, silkie feathers that we all know, they were like that of the Orpington, Cochin, etc. Now, purebred or not it makes no difference, I love her to death. I'm glad that we all agree that she looks to be a puller though lol Now, do you guys think the little buff silkie resembles a girl? Her crest has really started to come in, I'm seeing it to be more round than saggy. I have a 1 year old Buff Silkie rooster who would love a mate is why I'm so hopeful she's a pullet. Thanks so much for your help.
