    I bought this day old chick ( amongst others) and was told it was a silkie.
    So far the feathers coming in are quite smooth.
    Any ideas to the breed?
    The other chicks are Blue Laced Red Wyandottes ( for scale)
    The first photo is 1 week old.
    I think they are about 6 weeks old.
    Thank you in advance
    :eek:)

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us. I'd suggest posting on the What Breed or Gender is This? forum for advice from the experts.

    All the best

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! It does look like a Silkie in the first pic, but later on I'm starting to think Polish. Could be a cross-breed though, your best bet would be to post in the Breed/Gender section/
