    they are silkie x d'uccle mixes. mom was white silkie and dad was a millie fleur d'uccle

    i'm guessing:

    50% smooth feathers
    50% silkie feathers

    ~ a chance they might develop with the millie fleur pattern
    ~ color wise no clue since white mom could possibly be masking many other colors
    ~ comb would still be silkie with chance of straight combs
    ~ will still have the vulture hocks, beards, feathered feet/legs, and crest
    ~ possibly still have black skin and 5 toes
    ~ may or may not have blue earlobes

    heres a better pic of oatmeal
