    Some of these are suppose to be silkies and I think the rest are aracona mixes. I HAVE NO CLUE. The lady I got the eggs from had a hundred different kinds of chickens running around the yard.

    [​IMG] These two definitely had a silkie mom. They are from a separate lady. They have 5 toes and no cones

    [​IMG] This little one was the only yellow one in the whole batch

    [​IMG] Biggest darn chick I've ever seen

    [​IMG] My twins (not really, they just look alot alike)

    [​IMG] These two are aggressive



    I'm puzzled but would really love any opinion I could get


    Thanks everyone

    At two weeks you can see silkie feathering (or regular feathering) coming in on the wings. Also look for black/bluish-grey skin, feathered feet and 5 toes. I did not see anything that looked at all like an araucana.

    I hatched 32 mixed chicks just over 3 weeks ago, I have wyandottes standard and bantum and silkies/silkie crosses red, black and white. They all free range together so not sure who is who's daddy! I'll try and post some pics, some of them look like your little ones.
