    I know that dad is a Black Silkie (the only roo in the coop) The little yellow one has 5 toes on each foot (from dad) and orange feathered legs. And the little red one has 5 toes on each foot and like slate colored feathered legs. Perhaps my little yellow one is a silkie/sex-linked cross it does have the spots on the head but they are black (a reverse Sex-linked [​IMG] ) Does anyone wanna guess, I have no clue.

    Potential moms could be
    White Leghorn
    Black Sex linked
    RIR
    Light Brahma
    Phoenix
    Black Cochin
    SL Polish
    Buff Brahma
    Blue Silkie (I doubt because the eggs were brown and bigger than her)

    Well my first guess would be to rule out you blue silkie hen, I don't think she could be the mother of any of them unless they have black skin and feet/legs.

    So I would guess that the red babie would be a RIR mix and the yellow/blue chick is a ?Buff or light brahma mix.

    could ya post more pics at round 3/4 weeks old might be able to get a better idea then but they are such cuties!

    First one I would agree RIR mix.... kinda looks like the coloration of a gold duck wing OEG....

    Second one I am not sure.... we are in the same boat with that one!

    Also the Brahma mommas light Brown egg sounds right too, my girls laid large light brown eggs, but it says Med/large eggs for them so that makes since also.

    Hope that helps ya some!
