I have some little chicks who are starting to feather out. They all have 5 toes, some of them have normal feathers but a few of them have feathers that look frayed,. Is it typical of silkie crosses to have frayed feathers? I'll try to take some pics Here is a pic of the whole chic Here is a pic of the weird frayed wings. Half the chicks I hatched from these eggs have frayed feathers the other half have normal feathers. I don't know what they are but I sure do like them. Mutt chickens are sort of fun, I already knew what my rock barrs would look like feathered out, I already know what my white chanteclers will look like feathered out BUT these guys were a surprise and its been really fun to watch!
