    I have two painted silkies that I've had for about 2-3 months. The hen went broody and was on four eggs. Unfortunately, three were snatched and I brought the last remaining one in here to hatch in my incubator. It just wasn't safe outside. The baby hatched, and clearly is only part-silkie. I can't figure out who the father is. She was only in with the rooster, though I've had occasions where other chickens have managed to get in their section. I have a painted silkie rooster, a white silkie rooster, a blue-black cochin rooster, an Alsterier rooster, a black Swedish rooster and a D'Uccle rooster. I'm just not sure what the other part of this baby could be! The baby, whom I've named Tweeter, is a little over 2 weeks old now.

    You can rule out the silkie and cochin roosters that's for sure.
