    I've recently hatched our first chick on 4/21/17. I just wanted to share the progress of this chick we have named Peeper. Peeper is a Silkie Polish Mix. To my surprise so far the chick seems to have all it's fathers (Silkie) traits. Here are pictures of the father

    And this is what the mother (Polish)looks like

    And here's my Peeper

    I can't wait to see what this chick ends up looking like. To my surprise Peeper does have 5 toes and feathers down the legs just like its daddy.

    can you tell what kind of comb if he is showing one this early. I can't tell if he is has any sort of crest coming up. I would think he would since both parents are crested.
