    Hi, I'm new here as far as posting. I've been reading post for awhile now and finally able to login in...yeah:D

    I have a zoo here and recently added chickens. I have 2 hens and 1 rooster. Was told the rooster was a quail antwerp belgian. His name is Gravy. One hen is a black japanese and her name is Bisqit. The other is suppose to be a silky but she's a silky mix. Her name is Hashbrown.
    She was a mercy buy at a flea market where the guy kicked her cage and said" This one's 5 bucks". He then grabbed her out by a wing to put her in the carrier.
    She's huge and weighs about 4 lbs. She lays grocery store size eggs too and they are brown.

    I also have two 4 week old bantam chicks that I incubated. Not sure what sex they are but kind of thinking one hen and one rooster.

    Now have one more bantam chick that the hens hatched. None of Hashbrowns eggs were fertile.

    Here's some pics:) I need new pics of the 1st two b/c this pic is age 1 week.

    Thanks everyone:)

    S-Breed??? Hashbrown is definately not a silkie like the guy said. She's got some silkie feathering mixed with normal feathers. She lays grocery store size brown eggs.
    She's also a freak!!! I blame that on the way she was treated before I got her. She's even missing toes and half toes. Since we brought her home she has feathers coming back on her legs.
