    I hatched out 3 mystery chicks on between 1/11 and 1/12. They are all silkie feathers but there feathers and this ones comb. We contacted the person we got them from and she said they could be silkies, silkie x polish or silkie x cochin but since the feathering on the legs are so heavy i would go with silkie x cochin. This chicks comb has turned pink but the other two are still black. My guess is this is a cockerel by how pink the comb is already and wattles. I just want to double check with you all. LOL =)

    Also is this one and one of the blacks is already sparing would you say the other black is a roo also? This one backs down but the other wont. The third is just kinda there and does the usually running scratching and sleeping thing, so my guess is i have 2 cockerels and one pullet. =)
