    I picked these two girls up today. We are calling them Dove and Krusty ( cause she seems to have a skin condition, if you know anything about it please reply here -----> https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/947406/white-crusty-dander-on-chickens-face-with-pictures )

    Anyways I don't know what kind of Bantams they are and hope someone can help! I am thinking Dove might be an Easter Egger Bantam? I have no idea on Krusty, maybe she is a mix?

    Also I can in no way identify a crop on Krusty, Dove's crop is super tiny and gray like her face. Any ideas about that? The lady that sold them to me said they were around 8 months but I think they must be younger if their crops are not red or distinguishable yet?

    They are both feather footed. What do ya'll think?

    Krusty kinda looks like a Silkie mix, maybe? How many toes?

    They look like mixed breeds to me. Dove may be a Cochin bantam mix, and Krusty possibly has some Silkie in her.

    They each have 5 toes, I had to go and count because I was not sure.
    That probably means Silkie though huh?

    A local breeder/hobbyist rescue farmer in Largo, FL but she did not hatch these.

    Sounds like it! That and the dark skin, feathered feet... Krusty shows a partial topknot while Dove doesn't, but that happens sometimes... 5 toes and dark skin are dominant Silkie genes... and small dark comb...
    they are very cute!! :)
