    I have a bunch of birds that are EE and OE mixes. One has markings of silkie although my friend said she has never owned a silkie and it came from an olive egg. Love the silver penciled one with the fluffy head. Last one is a cochin that I think is a roo... any thoughts on these others. First 2 pics are OEs, next is another EE with a body shot and a head shot.

    I think the only one that maybe a cockerel so far is the Cochin.
