    We call him grey baby because he was the only grey baby when he was born all the others were pure black. He's about 7 months old and he's a silkie mix breed. I guess lets put him under most huggage.

    This is Moeaki. She is almost 6 months. She was sold to me as a silkie, but obviously not with her feathers, lol. Love her though, and she has been laying an egg almost every day for a month! I guess enter her in the cutest section.

    Quote:At first glance, he does not look like one but then again this topic is "silkie mixes". His mother is half silkie and I'm not sure what his father was because his mother disappeared one day into the neighbors yard. The characteristics that he has of a silkie that are not obvious in the photo are the feel of his feathers; they are extremely soft also he has 5 toes on each foot.

    I am still new to this whole chicken thing. What is a sex link roo?
