    If you have five toes on each foot, your mother was a silky.

    How many toes on each foot does it have? If its father was a Cuckoo Marans, then it is a mixed breed bird. I'm guessing that its mother was a Cochin or Silkie. It is too young to tell gender.

    I agree. Personally, I'm leaning towards Silkie mix.

    Dark skin? Sounds like a Silkie mix. Do you have Silkies or Cochins?

    I have two black silkie roosters, but the eggs came from a neighbor up the road. She has all kinds of chickens, but only one rooster: cuckoo marans .Yes, she has silkie hens.

    What about Brahmas? Do you think your chick standard or bantam? Belgian D'Uccles also have feathered feet. Both breeds have four toes and some in light colors (Light Brahma or porcelain D'Uccles)
