    This trio is from my Mille Fleur D'Uccle rooster and Silkie Mamas. One is grey splash and the other is tan (I don't know the exact color name). The two white ones are roos and the tan one is a pullet. The boys have vulture hocks and leg feathers and the girl does not. 2 have mohawks and muffs, while the one boy only seems to have the mohawk. They are going to their new home tomorrow to become a flock with a lonely Mille Fleur D'Uccle hen.

    I love this one. Wish I could keep him. His mohawk and face muffs are to die for!

    HI
    I just went and got some welsummer chicks yesterday and the lady had this silkie x something it looked too cute to pass up so I got it to.
    Just wondering if anyone would know what the cross breed would be?
    She said she has white and black silkie, but could it be a silkie/ welsummer x?[​IMG]

    Some of my former silky chickens had a chipmunk pattern when they were little. They were hatched from shipped eggs from Cjs exotics. They grew into a beautiful color when fully feathered. One was black and the other was a blue. Both fully silky, not mixed breed.
