    Could you possibly tell me what my dark pullet is. I had her as a day old chick. She was meant to be a Pekin, which she obviously isn't. I am assuming she is a Silkie but I thought Silkies had a pompom on their head? Could she be a Silkie/Pekin cross? Also, what colour would you say she is?

    Probably a silkied cochin. She's adorable! She looks either black or really dark blue, but it's hard to tell...

    Will she grow a pom pom on her head, there is absolutely no sign of one and she is 11 weeks old now. x
