    I bought these and was told they were silkies. Two hens and one rooster. There are definitely two roosters, I saw them crow. Ok don't laugh too hard! I'm super new to chickens, lol. One has what I think is called a rose comb. They are actually dark dark brown/black. and some of their tail feather have a green tint.

    How many toes do they have? Silkies have five toes. The tail feathers are a little strange for a silkie, but that doesn't mean it's not a silkie.
