    They are Silkie mamas with Mille Fleur D' Uccle dad. Looking to be some spectacular looking chickens. 2 from a gray splash mama and 1 from a tan mama (who also hatched them).... all have 5 toes and feathered feet.

    Tan mama? This chickie is more tri-colored, more tan feathers with white tips and black striping. Looks like it will have more head tuft and no reao hock feathers.

    Gray mama? There's 2 of these that look alike. Both have the hock feathers and are more black, gray and white with a little bit of tan.

    Yea, I can't wait to see what they turn out like! My Mille Fleur D'Uccle has been producing some very pretty, unique colorations with my Easter Egger hens. I hatched one that was either mixed with OEGB or Dutch Bantam that was going to be a stunning little rooster, but he got kiilled by something through the bars of the dog crate I had them in. One little chick survived the attack with a huge tear in its neck. I saved him and he is now the sweetest little cockerel. Follows me around, and falls asleep while I hold him. He is also looking to be very pretty, but most roos are, imo.

    I will probbably keep one, if any are hens. I'm sort of leaning towards the tan one. It seems to have more of the Mille Fleur coloring.
