    This youngin' was in a batch of four hatched by my sons class, she/he is now about 8 weeks old. I have no idea what breed this one is. size is smaller than the other three she/he came with (two what I believe are NH reds and one all white bird). Just noticed today the extra toe protruding off the other one. Now I just have my flock of RIR's and never ventured out into other breeds, so it's a mystery to me.
    So... what is it?

    The fifth toe and the feathered head indicate to me that it's some sort of Silkie mix. Maybe a Silkie X NHR?

    If Elvis Presley were to come back as a chicken, that one would be him. The "do" reminds me of his hair. Now, if it starts clucking "You ain't nothin but a hound dog" and dancing, be sure to tape and post it!

    Quote:Agreed! Definitely part silkie, the other part is most likely NHR. Adorable bird, regardless! I love the hairdo and the cute gray tail feathers. [​IMG]
