    I went to the feed store today and thanks to chicken math I picked up a couple of the chicks they just got in. They were both in the black australorp bin.
    This is one of my new "australorp"

    Don't Cochin's have yellow skin? This little one has all black skin, that's why I figured Silkie

    Since it has black skin and five toes on each foot, you're right: it is a Blue Silkie.

    agree it's a silkie though it will be quite awhile before it can be sexed with authority.
