    They are very light yellow/buff with leg feathers. Any ideas? My kids are really hoping they are Silkies...

    They are definitely not silkies. Silkies have blue skin, and their head looks much different than that. I am not sure what they are, but they could be bantam cochins :/

    [​IMG] For example, this is what a vaulted skull looks like (where they get the crests on top of their head) this is not a silkie, but it's the same idea. :)
