    I got some eggs from a friend. Mom is def a silkie. Dad could be silkie or another unknown breed. The eggs hatched. All have black skin and feathered feet. They are 1 week and developing wing feathers. (Not visible in pic) Does that mean they are a mix?

    no, it doesnt mean they are mixed. silkies do have harder wing feathers and i am assuming that is where you are seeing them? you didnt mention the 5 toes though. another silkie trait.
