    It has the dark skin and only one foot with 5 toes. Its about 3 weeks now and out of 6 different chicks (all different breeds) it is the smallest.

    Looks like a Silkie to me, but I am certainly no expert. [​IMG]

    One foot with only 5 toes? That's weird. I think it's a silkie mix.

    Looks like a silkie. Sometimes they pop up with less/more than 5 toes or single combs. As for the hard wing feathering, thats common in hatchery birds.

    My Silkies have never had that much hard feathering, I'd guess a Silkie mix. [​IMG]

    I'm guessing a silkie mix. My chicks have never had that many wing feathers. Even the few hatchery chicks I've had didn't have that hard of feathering.

    I was guessing silkie myself but something is more than likely mixed in. The fellow we got them from has a wide assortment of hens and roos and lets them free range together. Hence, why it might be a mix. I didnt remember seeing him with any silkies but he had @ 50 chickens so its very possible i didnt look at all of them. I do know for fact that he has some EE because he has given us eggs before and we have gotten the lovely blue eggs.
