    I got this Little chick at Atwood’s in the Bantam container. I’m leaning towards pullet but I am totally flummoxed as to what it is! It has 5 toes and black skin which makes me believe Silkie. But I haven’t never seen a feather pattern like this on a Silkie! Looks to be maybe mottled?

    Probably a Silkie bantam mix, I had some Silkie/bantam chicks, they look similar. Very beautiful when they grow up.

    Satin lacewing Silkie. May have come from lacewing Cochin x silkie in backround.

    Could be a houdan?? Looks like a possible crest.

    Would be nice but it has black feet which makes me think definitely Silkie mix. Do Houdans have black feet?
