    Awwww, soo cute!! How old are they? Is that last one a little silkie?? CUTE!!!!!!!
  4. They are from my buddies mom. Yes I incubated them and finally got it somewhat right. The one I call crested, I know is from a black w/white crest hen, and the strange bump one looks reddish like the RIR hen, and #2 could be anything(BR, Brahma,RIR,BWWC,Del,etc.). I dont remember seeing a silkie, I think she ordered some kinda mix layer bunch from a hatchery.
    They all have the same father, a really awesome looking tolound??? polish. He is a white base with splashes of black, brown, red, and orange. I gotta get a picture of him next time I go up there.
    I think she got the polish ones as rooster fillers, but got lucky and only one turned out a roo.
