    Does anyone know which breed my chicken could be? She's got feathered legs and have recently grown extra feathering on her head. She reminds me of a silkie but her skin is pink. Any help would be much appreciated! [​IMG]

    She is a lovely pet. This is a first time for us owning a chicken. Just hoping BYC could help me to learn a bit more about her. I am calling our chicken a "her" as I still have not figured out her sex or age yet!

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think she is the result of some crossbreeding. When you cross a Silkie with another breed, the first generation of chicks will be regular feathered and have black skin like the Silkie. Cross those chickens again and you will get some Silkie feathered chickens. She is cute!

    Probably a pet-quality Silkie or a Silkie cross.
