    In my April order from McMurray they included two "exotic" chicks. I don't know how to send photos online but hope someone out there can figure out what they are from my description. They are now 2 months old. One is solid black with a wild white puffy hairdo (like Don King only in feathers)- looks like photos I've seen of Silkies, but would their headpiece be a different color than their body? the other chick is white with black head and neck and bits of black on tail feathers. I've tried going through the MM Hatchery breeds but can't find photos like these two.
    Thanks to any who can help!

    the first one sounds like a white crested black polish. do an internet search, and you will find pics. the other one......hmmm.....could be a Lakenvelder
