    I popped some random fertilised eggs under my broody hen and these hatched. I noticed today the white and gold one has an extra toe which has intrigued me into finding out more about her. And the stripey one is crazy... Only 3 months old and already mounting one of the hens. So confident and cheeky. So wondered if anyone could tell me anything about them. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Gold one with the extra toe is a Silkie mix... barred one looks like a Cuckoo Marans mix...

    Were the eggs from your own flock?

    I'd say they are both Silkie mix of some kind.
