My silkie mama just hatched out 7 babies! I'm not sure who the roos are of the babies... But one roo I have is a frizzle. What kind of chicks would they be? Would they have frizzle feathering? I also have a cochin roo, 2 silkie roos, one light brama and an Americana (that I have never seen mount).

Any thoughts / info would be appreciated. Thank you!

if they have solid leg feathering you know the daddy isn't the ameracauna since all the others are feather footed (cochin, frizzled cochin, and brahma X silkie)

You won't be able to tell if any of the chicks are from the frizzle till they start to get their feathers in, so in about a week or so you should be able to notice the wing feathers starting to curl some - then you know who the daddy of that one is lol

What color is your silkie and the roos? since all the chicks are blue/black

My silkie hen is grey (believe that's the name, and not blue), and then I have one white silkie rooster, and one splash silkie rooster... or so I think he's splash? Is there another name for roosters that have a grey pattern on them?? Thank you!!

Okay, next question - I have two cochin roosters. One is straight-feathered and red, the other is a black frizzle. Do you think all 7 chicks are from the black frizzle?

Thank you!
