    My foray to the feed store has bloomed into some of the weirdest chickens! I have a chicken that looks like a mutant out of star wars. I'm guessing she is a silkie or a sizzle. Bit the strangest thing about her is that she is buff/yellow with deep deep turquoise eat lobes. Now the only one weirder than her is another one with a black body and a white face with black earlobes. So am I going to get turquoise and black eggs?! Neither of these chickens lives look like a normal color like the other ones. Any thoughts?

    Well the one with turquoise earlobes is probably a silkie. They are desiving. The other one... Well Uhmm... I am not sure what is up with her!

    You have a buff Silkie (irridescent earlobes are totally normal for them), and either a Jersey Giant, or Australorp. If you look closely at your black one, you'll notice that those are just a patch of feathers, not her actual earlobes. They will come in more when she reddens up for laying.
