ok, my silkie peeps, I have decided to ask y'all a not-so-silkie question. I have posted my question in "another" more appropriate thread a few times...and apparently there is a little "group" of people that are not interested in talking to new people. They did tell me right away, that the photo I posted was NOT a silver laced cochin, that it was just black. So posted more pics, because I was trying to figure out what this little girl is. Since then, I can't quite figure out why they just won't respond...if they don't know, they could say..."i don't have any idea". Anyways, this silkie thread has the nicest people on BYC. So I got my supposed "silver laced cochin" out for more pics. She came from Ideal, and the paperwork says Silver Laced, but after I have looked, I have decided that many other silver laced chicks look NOTHING like my girl. The little girl wasn't too excited about showing off her wings Hope these help. I have no idea what this is. There are little white streaks here and there on the shaft of her feathers. Then on the wings some look kinda painted or splashed??, but some are speckled with brown/beige too?? Let me know what you think! Any opinions are appreciated! Here is the little white feather shaft things (sorry if my anatomy is incorrect) Left wing with the splashed areas on feathers, then the inner feathers have brown speckled areas. Slightly out of focus (my silkie was confusing the camera). Here you can see the little brown black speckled parts.
