    We received 5 chicks that are about 2 weeks old. I made a post when my family and I first got them in attempt to find out their breed. Now that they are a little bit older, we are noticing that one looks different from the others. We believe that all 5 are a porcelain belgian bearded d'uccle and white silkie mix, but that's not certain. None have black skin, but all have some down feathers.
    In photo 1, the chick looks identical to the other 3. The 4 have pink feet and more of a silver/white tone to their feathers/down.
    In photo 2, the chick has bright orange feet and is more yellow.
    Is it possible that she received more physical traits from one breed in comparison to the other? Do you think that our guess on the breed is correct? Any comments and/or information is helpful. Thank you!

    We got them at the tractor supply in Kuna, Idaho. The bin they were in was labeled as "assorted bantams"

    They look like Sultans though they shouldn't have yellow skin.

    They have several extra toes, just like silkies do.

    They totally look like Sultans... Do you think both chicks are? Only one had the feathers growing in on its head.

    Hatchery birds often aren't stellar examples of the breed.
