    I'd like some opinions on some possible breed types in my flock. I think I have silkie crosses, Cochin crosses and maybe blue Delaware crosses?

    You totally have some silkies or silkie mixes! It'd be a bit hard to single out other possible breeds, but certainly a colourful backyard flock!

    I see Silkies and mixes. Silkie characteristics are so dominant, when you mix them with another breed it's sometimes very difficult to tell what that other breed was.

    I don't see any Blue Hen of Delaware there, though.
