    My guess would be maybe a Splash Andalusian? It has to be some white or silver gene birds.
    Could you get a pic of the face and comb for us?
    Thanks!

    There was a thread on here a couple of days ago with a chick that looked a LOT (maybe just) like that and it was turning into an all white chicken. I have no clue though.

    I believe you got yourself a little silkie. I just hatched 7 silkies last week, same color and everything. Looks just like them. [​IMG] They are sweet calm chickens. [​IMG] He/She is gorgeous!

    If the chicks skin is black you have a silkie.

    typical skin color, with clean legs. I'm trying to post pics of his face, but the kodak program isn't working fast enough.
