    I ordered 8 silkies and rec'vd 6 blue/splash silkies and 6 yellow chicks that do not look like silkies. If these are silkies, what color will they likely grow into? Thanks so much for your help!

    Silkies usually have feathered feet. Also black beaks and feet. Don't think they are silkies. They are cute though.

    Thank you so much! I was not prepared for Buff Orpingtons, I'll have to research a bit!

    Cochins have feathered feet as well, so they would not be cochins. Orpingtons are sweet and good layers from what I have heard. Enjoy them.
