    If they're all from the same hatch, I'd bet they are silkie crosses.

    Even if they don't have the fine silkie feathers? All have normal, flat chicken feathers.

    The "silkie" feathering is lost in the first cross. First generation crosses also sometimes loose the black skin and the fifth toe, sometimes.
