    I bought 2 of these from the farm store today. Listed as a bantam. Any idea what breed?

    I would say that this is a blue or splash Silkie. It does have a lot of Faverolles qualities, but colors other than salmon are suuuuper rare in the USA. I wish it was as easy as picking them up at a feedstore, then I wouldn't have just spent a month tracking down a breeder to get eggs from!

    I say silkie! I doubt a feed store would carry faverolles, not to mention bantam faverolles!

    Comb is a light yellowish and very hard to see. Looked a bit flat, then I saw what looked like two small "horns/bumps" side by side (left and right, not front to back). Again, very hard to make out.
