    6+ mystery breed bantam hatching eggs

    Take a look at my beautiful bantams. I have a splash pair (that are the smooth offspring of a frizzle line) and a chocolate hen. The splash pair have feathered feet and 5 toes. I bought them from a woman who knew very little about chickens. I think that they are silkie x cochin. The other hen, who is just beautiful, is a chocolate color.

    The pictures are not great, as they were taken this evening after they began to roost. My incubator is full of their eggs already, so I need to find others to hatch them. They should be some interesting and beautiful chicks!

    Here is the male:

    Oh, that boy is awesome colored! Does the choc girl have feathered legs?

    i had a silkie mix hatch with clean legs, 5 toes. Another splash silkie mix that has feathered legs, but 4 toes...just starting to get a poof on head. Never know what you will get!

    I love the mystery of mixed breeds! The chocolate girl came from another breeder altogether. She does not have feathered feet and has 4 toes. I am not sure what she is, but BOY she is so pretty in person!!
