    I traded two chicks for two silkies. One is a beautiful black pullet and the other is Oddball. She is the most unique chicken I have ever seen. Supposedly 4-6 months old. Pink skin, slate/black legs, 4 toes, funky comb, short and stubby body, really long neck and almost bare backside. Any clue what she could be crossed with? Banty of some kind? She is the same size as my 3 month old white silkie pullet.[​IMG]

    Agree that Oddball is a good name for that chicken. Mix of something like silkie X naked neck? She doesn't look like a frazzle or whatever you call a double frizzle? And I guess another question is she doesn't have mites or something messing with her feathers?

    She looks like a sizzle that has the silkie feather gene

    Thank you all for the replies. She sure has had me stumped as to what she was. She sure has grown on me.
