Do these week old chicks look like they were crossed with a big red roo?

    Mom was either my black silkie hen or blue silkie hen. I also have a blue silkie roo, but these peeps don't have fluffy tops like my silkies did when they were chicks.

    Yes, I think so. See the breakthrough red stippling on the wings and head? If you look on the shanks you should perhaps see some yellowishness too.

    The smaller 1 looks as if it was,but where exactly is the 2nd rooster?Your hens blood type could be mixed differently.The biggest/tallest looks as if it's Silkie mixed with austrorlop.Very black,and yet a small poof.Also look like sexlink mixed with silkie.

    Ok, Thanks. I can see some red breaking through on the one chick. The other not so much.

    Behind the big red one is the blue silkie roo.
