    I found some silkie chicks in my home town on Craigslist and the picture of one is black with some white on its head and chest and it has a yellow or Orange colored beak. Does this actually sound like a silkie or something else?

    Silkie's have black skin and 5 toes. Most breeds only have 4 toes. It doesnt sound like a silkie from your discription. Do they have feathered feet? Have you looked up silkie in the breeds index? Here is a link:http: https://www.backyardchickens.com/breeds/silkie/31230
