    I am no expert, but he looks like a silkie mix. Just the way he stands reminds me of my silkie. He's beautiful, whatever he is![​IMG]

    yeah, to keep that amount of foot feathering, has to be a Silkie/cochin cross. Pretty common cross actually. Cute results!

    Thanks everyone. Now if he mates with the Silkie in the picture is there any way of telling who the chicks will look more like?

    He looks like a cross of Silkie and Brahma.

    there is no telling who the chicks will take after more but if he does have silkie in him some of the chicks hatched will have silkie feathering, they all should have feathered legs, black skin, may or may not have 5 toes but i would think they all would due to it being a dominate gene, they should also all have blue ear lobes
