    This is a mixed breed chick born 2/23. Mom is a silkie and Dad s 1/2 EE & Frizzle. I an say the chick is full size and not bantam. I'll be back with another soon. I have 4 I can't figure out.

    Cockerel, with a comb that red at only 10 weeks. And dad had to have some silkie in him. The silkie feathering is recessive and requires two copies, one from each parent to express.
