    These are my 7 babies, roughly 2 months old. I bought them from Monkeyingaroundfarm , but I'm not sure which breeds/types survived of the original 13. Pretty sure he sent Olive-eggers, Frizzles (is that really the breed, tho? Thought I read any breed could frizzle), and Ameraucanas (EEs??). Two are Naked necks. There is one obvious roo, do you see any others?

    And, these are the Silkies. I thought all Silkies had the fluffy feathers, is that wrong? I'd love to know what color my "grey" Silkie is, and what breed? the two black ones are. I'd also like to know if the black with the really feathered feet by himself in the first 3 pics) looks like it might be a roo. These guys just started laying in the past 2-3 weeks, to give you an idea of age. I bought them off CL from a guy down the road.

    2 are white EE which could be your Olive Eggers
    2 BR and one is a male
    2 Turkens (or Naked necks)
    The Black ones are not pure (if any) Silkie, I am not an expert but reading the post on here....the others would either be hatchery quality or crossed Silkies.

    Quote:Any idea about the brown one?

    ETA I forgot which hatchery the Silkies came from, McMurray, maybe. The guy I got them from told me, but I've forgotten.

    The black chicken with feathered feet is not a silky, she is a lovely cochin hen (assuming she is of laying age). I really don't see any silky in her.

    The brown one could be a Leghorn or Welsummer.

    Quote:I suspected that. Not sure if the guy I got them from knew that, or if he thought they were Silkies.

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    I think the 2 white silies and the blue silkie are kind of nice looking! I love the cochins, too. I'm no expert on chicken breeds or standards, but I think you have a nice-looking mix to your flock![​IMG]
