    This little fellow has 5 toes, so I instantly thought silkie, but I'm really new to owning chickens. I also have a white silkie chick and a black silkie chick.

    Yep, looks like a silkie. Silver partridge, maybe? I have a hard time telling colors on silkies something with their soft feathers.

    It will be 4 weeks old tomorrow and has black skin. We ordered them. I have a mixed bunch. 1 Barred Rock, 5 rare breed hens, 5 rare breed feathered legs (straight run), and 5 feathered leg bantams (straight run)
