    I hatched this six week old chicken. She? came out of a small lightly tinted egg. Is she mixed with a Polish chicken? The feathers on her? head are starting to stand up.

    My three Cochin/Silkie x Barred Rock girls all have that slight pouf. Silkie blood is strong!! LOL. None of mine have feathered legs, though one does have a feather stub on one leg.

    I was wondering about the silkie/ee cross. Her? legs are black and the bottoms are yellow. I have been waiting to see if her legs turn green but they are staying black. The picture does give them a greenish tinge against the blue pants background. [​IMG] Thanks for your guesses!
