    This little one hatched out from a bunch of Silkie eggs I bought off of Ebay. He/she has 5 toes like a Silkie; however, the yellow/orange feet and beak are throwing me! To me...this one looks like a silkie mixed with a Bantam Cochin.

    Any other thoughts?? I'm planning to message the seller and ask her if she has Bantam Cochins haha! "Oh really??? You do??? Well I think your Silkies like your Bantam Cochins!" [​IMG]

    Quote:So I just looked at her feedback (which is 100% so she is a great seller), but she DOES sell BCM eggs!!! I'm awaiting her reply. Also, a few of the silkies have yellow on their toes [​IMG] My son was going to show them.

    The Black copper maran are yellow and black with fuzzy on the feet and legs but his legs are the wrong color...I would guess he is mixed with something...You would have also noticed a significant difference in the eggs...maran eggs are DARK brown.

    Quote:You're right...it wasn't a chocolate egg. It was a light brown...but...if it was a silkie hen and a BCM roo, it would still be a smaller egg right?

    If the silkie was the mom then the egg would have looked like a silkie egg. Maybe you will get lucky and ur mystery mutt will lay dark brown eggs. [​IMG]
