    We are new to chickens so we are a little confused. We were told we were buying silkies , which we wanted but I am pretty sure that only 2 are true silkie. Can anyone help and tell me what my other three beautiful baby's are? Any help will be greatly appreciate. [​IMG]

    You've got two that are at least part silkie. Need broadside, standing, close pics in natural light of each for accurate identification.

    The top two pics could be a Silkie cross. The white one, need pic of the feet. And the last pic is very likely a Millie Fluer D'Uccle.
