I am new and just learning the forums and just posted this question elsewhere. I was given these chickens yesterday and was told they are Japanese Silkies. Are they? And what kind of quality? Or are they a mixed breed? They were brought to me from a ranch where the aggressive chickens on the ranch were hurting them, and were just placed in my yard without explanation. Did not expect a rooster. But he is so sweet and protective of the girls. What do you think of them? They still look a little frazzled from being on the ranch and being harrassed for a while. I will get them fat and fluffy.
