Looks like a silkie but normal feathers. Any ideas?

  4. X2...my girl is a cochin/silkie cross. She doesn't have the top poof, but has 5 toes, black legs and feet(not skin), pea comb and feathers are shaped like cochin but have many with the hairy texture of the silkie. She is a pet, supe friendy little bantam who LOVES her people..LOL!

    Agree on the silkie mix. The silkie feathers are recessive, so when you mix with something else you lose them. But the other characteristics like five toes, crest, black skin etc are usually carried down to some extent.
