S/he looks like a Silkie mix, Silkie's are a common breed (you can kind of tell around here) The mix could have been a Easter EggerXSilkie.

if you breed silkie to non-silkied, the chicks will not be silkied. Both parents either have to be silkied or carry the silkie gene for the chick to be silkied. They could have a Silkie rooster

I would have thought a dorking would be more likely than a silkie :/

Any of my chicks born from one parent with feathered feet, has feathered legs. Although not as feathered for sure.
