    Could anyone tell me what breed the cutie may be ? She has the blue cheeks like my silkies and has five toes with the feathered feet but everywhere else on her is feathers.Any ideas ?!

    That's a mixed breed. She obviously has some Silkie in her, due to the five toes, black feet, and earlobes. Maybe some Faverolle.

    The silkie characteristics tend to be so dominant it can be hard to tell what they're mixed with. All I can say for sure is I don't think the other half is Cochin, not with that upright build and tail. Other than that, it's anyone's guess. She's a cute little thing and will probably lay light brown eggs. She may be a good broody momma also.

    You know, if you get too many broodies you can always box them up and ship them to me! My "mommacita" is getting up in years, I just hope she continues to want to brood each year!

    Here's how much she wanted to nest before....it was November and I was sick, one of the only times I didn't want chicks. I took all the nests out of her little coop, so she tried to brood in the feeder [​IMG]. Poor little thing.
