    The last one looks like a black cochin, but has more yellow on it. Are they banties or large fowl?

    1. Partridge silkie
    2. Black cochin

    The top one is a light-colored silkie. (dark skin and signature face gives it away). At first glance I thought the bottom pics were a bantam sumatra, but the feather feet stopped that thought short. It's a black cochin.

    I thought that a silkie had to have 5 toes. I got that one wrong. I have a black one. I am very happy that the last one will be a cochin. I hope that "she" will have really furry legs and feet!!!!!!

    Thanks for the input as always. [​IMG]

    Quote:silkies are supposed to have 5 toes, it's common to get them from a hatchery with only 4 toes.....
