    Just curious if anyone has a guess on what breed this baby might be? Or better yet, do you think it is a Black Silkie mix? (We are really hoping for a Motorcycle baby! [​IMG] [​IMG] Motorcycle is my son's Black Silkie roo.) Definitely is a mix. Has the furry feet, so that narrows it down. And here's the breeds with furry feet that I own: Light Brahma hens and a Black Silkie roo (narrows it down even more!).
    Heres some of my questions about it:
    1. Would a Black Silkie mix have to have the extra toe?
    2. What about the black beak?
    3. This one has the "black" skin like the Silkies, does that mean Silkie mix?

    Thanks for any help!

    I am no expert but I have recently hatched some full blook silkies and he definitely has silkie in there I think. what a cutie pie. If he is a mix that explains not having the extra toe and not uncommon with mixes.
