    I know that dad is a Black Silkie (the only roo in the coop) The little yellow one has 5 toes on each foot (from dad) and orange feathered legs. And the little red one has 5 toes on each foot and like slate colored feathered legs. Perhaps my little yellow one is a silkie/sex-linked cross it does have the spots on the head but they are black. Does anyone wanna guess, I have no clue.

    Ok when it hatched it looked like this I was told RIR/Silkie cross, do you still think so?

    Now at 1 week old

    This one was guessed to be Silkie/Light Brahma Cross

    At hatch

    One week

    This next 1 was born completly black but now has some red feathering any guess? Maybe another RIR/Silkie Cross

    And this last one has a few white patches on the chest and bottom I have no guess on this one but hoping that someone does.

    Potential moms could be
    White Leghorn
    Black Sex linked
    RIR
    Light Brahma
    Phoenix
    Black Cochin
    SL Polish
    Buff Brahma is what I was told but I think she looks more like a red sex linked
    Blue Silkie (I doubt because the eggs were brown and bigger than her [​IMG])

    Any help here is appreciated

    Look like our BB Red chicks did at first. I would just say they are a hybrid and enjoy them!

    What color is the silkie rooster? If he's not black, then I would guess the BSL or black cochin is the mom of the two black chicks.

    I'm going to guess the moms of these chicks are:

    Chick 1 - Phoenix (If you google Phoenix chickens and look at the chick pictures, you will notice this chick looks like them.)
    Chick 2- Light Brahma
    Chick 3- BSL, Buff Brahma, or RIR Does s/he have feathered feet? Depending on this I might be able to help more. [​IMG]
    Chick 4- Black Cochin

    I hope this helps!! [​IMG]

    I think it's too early to tell. They change so much once they're feathered out. I had a white chick once that I thought was a white rock, then I thought it was a white giant, and it wasn't till it feathered out that I discovered it was an Easter-Egger (puffy cheeks:lol:)
