    We ordered 2 silkies this last spring. We recieved 2 back birds along with the Orpingtons we ordered. They did not end up being silkies. I've searched around and cannot seem to find a match.

    They have a black wattle and black feet. They are both roosters. Here is a pic my son took.

    Any ideas on the breed?

    Hoovers. I looked through their breeds but I do not see anything with black wattle and feet that look like that.

    Those are breed defining characteristics, yes?

    Could be an Asian Blue.

    So, is it true or not that the wattle and feet color are breed specific?

    Hoover sells an Asian Blue but the wattle in the picture is red.

    I don't recognize this breed, but I would guess that Gray Farms is right.

    Leg and comb color are not breed specific. Several breeds have dark legs and combs/wattles. Slight variations exist in every breed however. Like comb color, leg color, etc. These "incorrect" traits should not be passed on in breeding future generations.
