    A few weeks ago we got a batch of "pullets" chicks from a local place on the island. The said they were Blue Asians "which I have hound out very little about" and they were all black except one. Which I told the lady I must have.

    Is it very active and climbs all over the place. It's legs are very green "the most reptilian looking legs I have seen on a bird"

    It's been two weeks here is what we have now.

    Black comb and waddles 5 toes. We have three others at are less colorful. Bought as silkies from the local TS - obviously that was all wrong.

    The last bird is a mixed breed cockerel. It may have some silkie heritage a few generations back, with the black skin and five toes, but it's a ways to lose the feathered legs, walnut comb and crest.
