    I am pretty sure it is a little roo but not sure what breed. It was hatched early Sept. from eggs I got in the August swap. I just love its coloring.[​IMG] I hope this works, first time trying to post picture.

    Pretty Mix. As far as what to make it ....no telling there are a few breeds with beards and/or feathered legs, and/or 5 toes.

    I think it's an EE/Faverolles instead of EE/Silkie. Most Silkie crosses I've seen have some sort of crest and blue earlobes, this one looks just like an EE, only 5 toes and feathered legs. Faverolles have 5 toes and feathered legs. They fit the bill a bit better IMO.

    And it's a pullet, btw. [​IMG]

    I agree also, I don't think favorolles have black skin. She's sure pretty! I think I'll cross some of my silkies and EE's! [​IMG]
