    Ok I have a few questions. Do light Brahma chicks grow slower than other chicks? I have a few chicks same age and rest have lots of feathers...brahma does not. See pics below. Also anyone have any idea what color this silkie mix will be? Last question I have a what I was told was a barred rock silkie cross. Is this possibly a boy?? Just looks very boyish to me. All pics below:

    I have zero answers, but just wanted to say I have a turken with the exact same marking on his head like your #2 pic.

    I love the way she looks. She is a brown leghorn.

    Thanks for the reply. Glad to hear you think the barred rock mix looks like a female...I think sh will look interesting and would hate to have to re home her.
