    Hi all,

    I received 3 chicks from a woman who had a mixed flock, but I was just getting into chickens at the time and only recognized a few of the breeds she had. She told me two of the chicks were blue silkies, and the third one was a mystery chick. The chickens seem to be almost fully grown, but I can't tell what they are. I am pretty sure they are all hybrids. The "silkies" definitely don't look like silkies to me.

    I figured the rooster is part bar rock due to his coloration when he was a chick and also his current feather colors. However, he has some iridescent green tail-feathers, feathered legs, and slight reddish feathers in places. Anyone have a guess for the other half?

    The silkies were a bit muddy from scratching around after the rain, as well as the rooster going after them ;)

    All guesses would be appreciated!

    Your little hens look like silkie mixes. Hard to say mixed with what from the pics.

    Your rooster does have one barred parent, it may have been a barred Rock or another breed. Again, hard to say from the pic. With the red leakage, the best bet is the other parent was gold based.
