    This is Scoops. I'm pretty sure he's a rooster. He's 7 weeks old. He has the feathered legs and feet. I got him and 2 other females who look just like him minus the pronounced comb at Tractor supply and they said they were silkies but everything I'm reading is making me question that plus it's not from a breeder. He's got pink skin and only 4 toes but he is still alot smaller than my 2 sex links. Any ideas or thoughts on what he is a mix of? He certainly has the friendly silkie disposition as well [​IMG][​IMG]

    He's not a silkie. White silkies have purple skin.

    Oh yeah...cool I think you're right after looking up pictures! Thank you! This is my first batch of chickens. All 3 of my little white ones are super friendly like how they describe silkies on all the sites so I'm glad at least if they aren't silkies they are friendly like them [​IMG]

    Cochins are just as friendly as silkies
