    Hi, I just recently got given a few chickens from a friend of mine and I was wondering what breeds they are and one of them has quite an odd colouring so maybe what her colouring is? I'm not sure whether they are mixed breed or something else... They're all hens.

    ^^The odd coloured one.. She used to have hardly any white (I saw photos from early in time) and she has gotten more over time.

    Thanks :)

    Thank you! I was pretty sure they were a silkie mix as she has Silkies and Belgian Bantams so could be a mix of both?

    Yes, they look like they could be mixes of those two breeds.

    Yep, thanks :) I also have another chicken and her father was a Frizzle (I don't know what breed and he died). Is there anyway to tell what breed he was?
