    It is a bantam, 5 toes, black with some white on down/feathers, feet are mostly black with just the toes past the first joint white/cream color, beak black, eyes big and black. Feathered feet. What do you think? The wings are feathering a bit.

    Looks like a silkie, although the wings seem to be smooth feathered? If so, it's a silkie mix, if not, it's a silkie.

    It's definately not a faverolle. It's either a pure or mixed silkie. Are the feathers coming in shredded or smooth?
