    I have this "Silkie" but it's not 100% Silkie. It only has 4 toes and pink/white skin. It looks like it's developing a single or rose comb. This isn't the only one I have in question. I have 2 other "Silkies" that have pink/white skin but they have 5 toes. They are developing different combs than a Silkie would. I hope they will look better when they grow more. The one pictured is creepy looking. The 1st pic is of all of them but the others are just of "Four-Toes".
    [​IMG]The one on the right looks like just a pink-skinned Silkie/ hatchery quality.

    In the mix of those I got a purebred Silkie rooster but I have to sell him. There is one that's not pictured that doesn't have the "mohawk" on her head or at least not much of one. I'm disappointed in what I ended up with. When I first saw them they looked like regular Silkies but when I got them home, different story. I was googling some different mixes trying to figure out what they're mixed with so I'll know if I want to sell them or not. The closest I've come so far is Easter Egger.

    Yeah. Looking at pictures of EE's I'm leaning towards EE Silkie cross. The others don't look like she does. Hopefully they're not mixed with EE too.
