    Silkies have black skin and 5 toes. That looks more like a cochin. I think I got a bunch of those today too!

    My broody hatched out 2 chicks & one looks more like the one in that picture. How big are Cochin eggs? I thought I had all Silkie eggs but they were free. So I'm not complaining & it's cute!:)
