Forgive my lack of knowledge We have a black hen that was bought locally from someone who said she was a silkie / polish mix (she can legitimately fly so shes definitely mixed). I will have to add a photo of her tomorrow. It was her egg that hatched into this pretty chick. The Rooster had to either be a partridge silkie or a spitzhauben... Any guesses as to what you see and thoughts on hen or roo? The chick is sweet, it will just sit with you and will nuzzle in and lay so im leaning towards hen but it seems to have those wisks on the back of the neck that I think is a sign of roo in silkies.
