    everyone, meet Fria! She's a 7 week old, silkie/Marans cross. I'm hoping, she's a she but what are your opinions? Right now, she's inside trying to recover from sour crop so I can get a couple more good pictures if needed. Thanks!

    Her mother is a straight comb white silkie. Her dad is a BCM that carries the recessive wheaten gene.
