    Hopefully figured out how to post pictures.. mama is a black silkie.. I have 4 unexpected babies that look the same (see larger with stripes) I am guessing papa may be my Ameracauna rooster ( He was purchased through Meyer Hatchery as Ameracauna Pullet ended up being rooster and since reading on here more than likely just an EE.) the Little black with whitish chest guy is more of a guess.. mama was a red cochin (presumabley) and daddy could be black Japanese bantam, black cochin bantam or my Ameracauna/EE roo or I have 2 black silkie and 2 white silkie roosters as well as a silver spangled hamburg.. can we say too many roosters.. but amazingly all get along.. no fights and no bloodshed..Any takers on what I may have turned out here?? Just keeping fingers and feathers crossed that they are at least mostly hens...no more roosters needed!!!

    I have one that looks exactly the same as the bigger one....the mother of mine is a cochin and the daddy is either a frizzle cochin or an ameracauna......Im guessing that yours is a cross with the Ameracauna as mine is probably the same..... The 2 with the stripes I think are from the same roo. " the Ameracauna"
