    This guy hatched out of an egg that was sold on eBay as a silkie egg. His skin is pink and he has four toes. Any idea what he might be? [​IMG]

    He's a mix. He likely has some silkie ancestry, but he's not an F1 cross. I'd be sending a pic to the seller and asking what's up. And for a refund, that's sure not what you paid for. Leave appropriate feedback.

    No way is that a silkie. Yes, complain to seller and tell him/her folks from BYC(with a membership of over 400,000 worldwide) say it is NOT a silkie.

    3x not a Silkie. Get your monies back or make sure you notify the person.
