    Look like silkies to me! Do they have five toes?

    I love the jadite bowl! [​IMG] The one in the stone bowl looks a little off in coloring.

    Yes, they have five toes! I am so happy they are Silkies. Out of 18 eggs I ended up with 11 chicks and lost one of those . I can pick out the cochins but I was not sure of these and I wanted Silkies so bad![​IMG]

    They look pretty good too. Nice foot feathering and one has a lot of poof.
