    Iv'e had most of these since last summer. Some i just hatched 10 weeks ago. I don't have a clue what they are except for the polish. Maybe someone can tell me. The lady i got them from had an assortment.
    Silky's ,frizzles,polish,japs,(i think thats what she called them,doesn't sound politicaly correct) and more.
    Here are some pics. This is mom and dad. No longer have a roo in my coop, so much quieter.
    These are some of thier baby's.
    These are my other girls. I know the top one is a frizzle, that's all i know.
    My polish and my sweeeetest one.
    The top two,sweetest most effectionet birds ever.
    If you chicken pros or even newbies can help me figure out what breed my birds are i guess i could say something besides i don't know. Thanks. Angie.

    Other than the Polish and the buff (OEGB???), they all look like Silkie crosses to me.

    I thought she had silky in her. She always wants to be picked up or just sits on my lap when i sit in the run.

    Thanks for the replys. It didn't matter to me, i love them no matter what they are. I just felt kind of silly when people asked me. I never ever would have thought that chickens would be so sweet and effectionate. They are deffinatly more than just egg layers. They are funny funny little criters. I heard silkys are realy nice, if my half breads are this nice then i want some silkys!!! Thanks again. Angie.

    Aww! Your second photo looks just like my boy Beetle! Same coloring, build, crest, tail carriage, feathered feet, the works. (Well, your boy has a better crest, honestly.) Beetle's father was a black Silkie and his mother a millefleur Belgian Bearded d'Uccle. He was a great little guy.

    Ya he was great but too loud. I miss him but he went to a nice place. Can't have roos here cause my neighbors are too close. No one complained but i was always running outside to shush him.
