    Hi, I'm a bit new at being a chick-mom... just got first 3 chicks at Tractor Supply and here's their picture! So Cute, I know! Two are Hubbard pullets (a/k/a most likely ISA browns) and the white was supposed to be a "silkie", however, not sure if that is really accurate....?? there's no fur on her feet (maybe that develops later?) but her head looks different. Any suggestions ? Thank you!

    Yes the profile pic is actually of "Eleanor" ... She is the white bigger one...I read that some hatcheries breed out silkies therefore some going to TSC do not have feathered feet.... She has black feet and five toes, and huge wings for two weeks old..thanks!!

    THANKS EVERYONE! HOPEFULLY SHE'S A FEMALE... I did the wing length test, her feet came up when I held her on her back (instead of extending), and I'm pretty sure I did not see any bump when I did the vent test.... ? Not sure how full proof these methods are, she's about 2 weeks old now.
