    This chick hatched out of eggs I purchased which were suppose to be buff or partridge Silkie eggs. She has 4 toes and looks like my baby cochins looked like. My cochin and silkie eggs are very similar looking, so I am wondering if she is a mix or if I accidently received a cochin egg [​IMG] Sorry the pics aren't great I am running late for work but wanted to take pics before I left [​IMG]

    Looks like a silkie x cochin cross. Might be a roo with that naked back. That's usually a signal for me. Cute though!
    Do you have any frizzles? You can cross that chick to a frizzle maybe and make sizzles. I think. [​IMG]

    Thanks for your ideas. I am stumped on this one. Unfortunately this is the only chick that hatched [​IMG] The egg looked just like a silkie egg. So its probably a mix of Silkie and Cochin. Its probably a boy too [​IMG] LOL [​IMG]
