    I bought Lola about a month ago from a lady who said she was a black silkie hen. Now Im not so sure. Shes my only chicken ive ever had. Indoor pet. So I guess I didnt really look into what young silkie looked like but the more pictures i see the less silkie she becomes. she has the 5 toes and black skin. and the silkie feathers underneath just not her chest or wings. So i guess im looking for what she might be mixed with. And shes not looking so black anymore either so a color?

    thank you very much for your replies...her feathers just dont look at all like the silkies. there very soft but have the appearance of normal feathers. and she has actual wing feathers. And i looked up silkiechins and looks to be right on the nose. Thanks again. oh and any guess on sex or age? I think about 3 months but not sure.
