    I got 5 chicks today from a guy that I bought a coop from. He said they are silkies and they all have the extra town, but a couple have white feet and I'm not sure on the coloring on these. Any ideas on what they might be? [​IMG] the 2 in the middle are the same color.

    Better photos of them is needed. Side shots showing legs and heads clearly.

    The one on the end closest to the camera looks like it might be a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    They all have the extra toe like a silkie, the last one is missing a toe on 1 side I noticed, but a couple have white skin and a couple have black. I think these might be crossed with something.

    And the one in the second picture has actually wing feathers instead of the fluff that's on my older silkie chicks I already have.

    Not every hatch of silkies are SOP, so they could be "off" because of that OR be silkie mixes. Give them a few more weeks and should be able to tell.

    There are a few with yellow feet, my guess is they could have some Cochin in the mix.
